Self-harm and suicide are both sensitive issues and major challenges and this informative, comprehensive resource tackles these subjects in five effective steps:
• Understanding self-harm and suicide
• Proactive interventions
• Staff training and facilitator support
• Staff training: Working with groups
• The Programme.
An audio CD of diary stories is included and the 10-part student programme develops preventative strategies, recognises peer support and allows access to therapeutic agencies.
Materials include a self-harm policy plan, information leaflets, PowerPoint presentations and facilitator notes. The resource supports a whole-school approach to mental health promotion.
A practical, sensitively constructed and timely resource which develops self-help skills and support systems to enhance the emotional well-being of troubled young people.
