“This DVD has helped me so much. I have struggled to understand my son’s self harm but even this short trailer has given me more empathy and willingness to understand. For the first time – something hopeful about self harm!”
We speak to Jenny, Mark, Fiona and Satveer who have personal experience of self harm and whose courage in speaking out has enabled them to discuss their experiences on film.
This exploration of four very different struggles will highlight the very individual issues faced by people who self harm, including treatment by medical staff, disability, alcohol use and culture.
We also speak with leading professionals, who can offer practical and professional information about working with people who self harm.
This comprehensive resource has a section where you can download enlightening and useful resources, such as poetry, leaflets, posters and a workbook to promote awareness and intervention for self harm.
