Self Harm and Suicide Online Training Course
Self harm and suicide are very emotive and sensitive subjects. More research has been done over recent years into incidents and causes of these behaviours and we are talking about them more openly which is really positive. Sadly there are still stigmas attached to people with mental health needs and there are still myths about why people self harm or choose to take their own life. The impact on people who self harm and their families can last a lifetime and the impact of suicide on family, friends and carers can be immense.
If you are personally affected by self harm or suicide or you are feeling particularly emotional right now, please make sure you seek support for your own wellbeing. You might want to consider if now is the right time for you to take this online training course. If in doubt, seek support. Your own wellbeing should always come first.
