It is estimated that around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, and the reality is that not everyone seeks help, so this figure may well be higher. There are many different reasons why young people self-harm, and many different forms that self-harm can take.
This workshop will explore some of the reasons young people self-harm, some of the ways you can identify when someone might be self-harming, and some of the ways you can support a young person who is self-harming.
