The Cheshire and Merseyside Children and Young People Self Harm group are looking to raise awareness of the Cheshire and Merseyside Young Persons Self Harm Practice Guidance previously developed in partnership with the North West Coast Clinical Network.
This document has been developed as a reference guide for all agencies and practitioners who work with children, young people, and their families.
It is intended as a guide to supporting children and young people who have thoughts of, are about to or have self-harmed.
The guidance will support practitioners to keep children safe by outlining:
- What Self Harm is
- Triggers for Self-Harm
- How to Support Children and Young People who Self Harm
The guidance can be accessed via the following weblink https://no-more.co.uk/useful-resources/ and can be found under the under the ‘useful wellbeing resources’ heading at the top left of the web page.
