Help at school


It makes a huge difference for me to know that there is an adult at my school who knows all about my condition and who I can talk to if I am worried or unwell.


 Don't judge me

  • Your first response to knowing I self-harm is very important.
  • Please do not judge me negatively and try to understand.

Stay calm

  • Please stay calm and help me deal with the immediate situation.

Try to understand

  • Try to understand my feelings of distress even if they appear minor to you.

Ask me

  • Help me feel I have some control by asking me what I would like to happen and what I might need.
