|The aim is to help teachers, social workers, volunteers and parents understand better how to approach children and young people in such situations.
What the MindEd SSHP offers are skills building scenarios and supporting knowledge sessions to help you know the do’s and don’ts in these difficult situations:
•How do you talk to a young person whom you suspect of harming themselves?
•What can you say that will be helpful and how can you manage yourself when you may be feeling shocked about the situation?
•How can you improve understanding?
•How can you assess their safety and co-create safety plans?
•Learn more about what helps and what can make things worse.
•What do you do if a young person you support has experiences a death by suicide?
•What are the overlap and the differences between suicidal thinking and self-harm?
