The next Parent and Carer Support and Information session will take place on-

Self Harm

This session will hopefully increase parents and carers understanding about Self Harm and offer some practical ways they can help young people who may consider or display self-harming behaviour.  

The session will be facilitated by Lucia Romeou Somma from the Penumbra Edinburgh Self Harm Project. Lucia provides information, advice and support to parents and family members of young people who self-harm and has lived experience of self-harm and recovery.
