Self-harm: parents’ experiences

In this section you can find out about the experiences of parents and other family members of young people who self-harm by seeing and hearing them share their personal stories on film.

Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 39 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as why young people self-harm, discovering that a young person is self-harming and how they helped their young person, as well as living with self-harm, support and treatment, and what helped them cope.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
