This video talks about the sensitive topic of self-harm; how unmet emotional needs can give rise to different forms of self-harm and the relationship between self-harm and suicide.
If you are affected by the issues raised in this video, please contact your GP, child & adolescent mental health services or call 0300 111 6000 to speak to someone at Suffolk Mind who can help you to access the right support.
A follow up video on how to approach having conversations about self-harm with children and young people will follow in February. If you would like to know when this is available, please subscribe to our newsletter here.
This video was commissioned by Suffolk public health to help prevent self-harm and suicide.
