What is it?
Young people's self-harm can leave families confused, anxious and feeling like there's nowhere to turn. Now, based on in-depth research with parents, a team from Oxford University's Centre for Suicide Research are launching a guide to help parents and carers who are trying to cope with this difficult situation.
What professionals say
A useful guide developed with parents who have experienced self-harm behaviours in their children, aimed at helping other parents feel able to cope with this difficult situation. The advice about getting support includes national information, but local services and support can be found on MindMate instead.View now
