Managing Self-Harm in Children & Young People

The Government has asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for children who are vulnerable and for those children of workers critical to the coronavirus (COVID-19) response who absolutely need to attend.

While in lockdown, there is the potential that children could be at an increased risk of self-harm. A Managing Self-Harm Online Toolkit has been developed to support professionals and parents/carers. Further resources will be added to the toolkit over the coming weeks.
