Mind in Camden has organised a course that will provide a space for staff to explore ways of understanding and supporting people who self-harm in forensic and detention settings.

Topics covered include:

  • What is self-harm and why might someone do it?
  • The relationship between self-harm, emotions and traumatic life events
  • Ways of safely opening up conversations about self-harm
  • Coping strategies for those who want to stop or reduce their self-harm
  • Self-care strategies for staff
