The course is split into two modules: An Introduction, and How to Respond.
You will learn the risk factors, the common reasons why somebody might self-harm, and how to respond to any young person who you suspect may be self-harming.
The course also discusses how to approach the issue in schools and how healthcare professionals can feel better prepared to help the young people they come into contact with.
On completion of the course, you will automatically get a certificate, containing your name, CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.
