Resources for parents and carers

 

The following information addresses how parents and carers can identify and respond to their son or daughter who has self-injured, and how parents and carers can access professional help for adolescents who self-injure.

 
 

This guide was developed, together with colleagues at the University of Queensland, to help parents and families understand self-injury, and find some effective ways to intervene.

 

This booklet explains self-injury and provides some useful tips and resources for parents and family members. We hope you benefit from the information we provide.
