Understanding self-harm and suicide prevention (twilight)
This training will cover self-harm and suicide prevention within the context of schools. It is free for all Norfolk and Waveney schools/academies.
We will consider why young people may self-harm and what schools can do to offer support. We will think about when young people are at risk of suicide, and consider carefully what schools need to do when they are worried about a young person.
Aims of the training are to
• increase knowledge about self-harm and suicide
• understand how you can support young people
• be confident in using the NSCB guidance ‘What to do if you believe a child might be at risk of suicide’
