Understanding Young Minds – free online course for Parents - Virtual College 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. 

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.

60% of parents feel uncomfortable discussing self-harm with their children.

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 who is self-harming
