SELF HARM - A SUPPORT GUIDE FOR PARENTS AND CAREERS:
Regents Park Community College recognises self harm can be a response that students have taken in attempting to cope with an issue. We will endeavour to support all students and their families with this difficult subject alongside other mental health issues.
Please see the guide that had been issued from the Southampton Mental Health Forum that aims to inform and support parents and carers about Self Harm. It has been produced by the University of Oxford and was developed from talking to parents and carers of young people. It is aimed at helping parents, carers, other family members and friends cope when a young person is self-harming. It includes information on the nature and causes of self-harm, how to support a young person when facing this problem and what help is available.
Should you wish to speak with someone from school regarding self harm, please phone and ask to speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mr D Strange).
