Coping with self-harm

Narrow divider

This guide has been developed, by researchers at the University of Oxford, through talking to parents and carers of young people, and 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.
