Dear colleagues,

As you are all aware, self-harm has been a key issue not only for young people in our county, but indeed has been an area on the rise across the country. For those of you who attended the conference we hope you came away 'buzzing' and well armed with the information you need for dealing with issues of self harm and suicidal tendencies. You will be able to find the Toolkit and pathways on this page with appendices to help your work with young people to help you better support them.

We hope you enjoy the video, and that it will refresh in your minds if you attended the conference the issues you may face when dealing with self harm, and how to deal with it.

We would welcome your feedback on the conference, please e mail us at asknormen@nhs,net
