Multi-Agency Self Harm Practice Guidance
Sefton have developed a Multi-Agency Self Harm Practice Guidance.
This document has been developed as a reference guide for all agencies and practitioners who come into contact with children, young people and their families. It is intended as a guide to supporting children/young people who have thoughts of, are about to, or have self harmed.
The guidance will support practitioners to keep children safe by outlining:
- What self harm is;
- The triggers for self harm; and
- Guidance about what to do when working with young people and children who self-harm
