Understanding Young Minds - free online course

We have worked in partnership with SelfharmUK to create a free online course designed to help parents talk about the issue of self-harm with their children.

Background to this Understanding Young Minds course

Thousands of children and young people in the UK are thought to be impacted by self-harm each year. Spotting the signs can be difficult, and approaching the subject with your children can be an uncomfortable experience.

This online course, ‘Talking to your children about emotional resilience and self-harm’, has been designed to provide you with a basic awareness of the subject to help you approach your children with confidence about the issue.

Learning outcomes

This course will help you to:

  • Know what self-harm is and why young people may do it
  • Know what makes young people vulnerable to self-harming behaviour
  • Understand in what ways you can support a young person is who self-harming

This course will be of interest to professionals working with children but is not a replacement for a full training course; Find out more about professional training around self-harm here.
