The course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.
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.
Only 5 registrations will be accepted per organisation for each community Mental Health First Aid workshop. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a dedicated training event for your organisation.
