Talking about self-harm

Self-harm is behaviour that is done deliberately to harm oneself. At least 10% of adolescents report having self-harmed.

A free, downloadable guide for parents and carers who have discovered a young person's self-harm, called Coping with self-harm: A guide for parents and carers is available here.

It provides information for parents and families about self-harm, its causes and effects.

Based on current research on self-harm and on the interviews with parents whose children self-harmed, it contains quotes from them with advice for other parents as well as evidence-based information and links to sources of help.
