The 4-hour Mental Health First Aid Conversations about Non-Suicidal Self-Injury course is for any interested adult.
You will learn how to assist a person who is engaging in self-injury. This course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.
WHAT THE COURSE COVERS
The term ‘non-suicidal self-injury’ (NSSI) describes a behaviour where a person deliberately or purposefully hurts themselves. It is used to refer to self-injury that is not intended to result in death.
When we use the term ‘self-injury’ we are specifically excluding painful or damaging behaviours that are socially accepted or ‘sanctioned’ such as tattooing, piercing or other forms of body art, and cultural practices involving injury.
This course gives participants an opportunity to learn how to help someone who is engaging in self-injury.
This is an education course, to learn how to give first aid to others, and is not a therapy or support group.
