Students who have recovered from self-harm and eating disorders often cite the pivotal role that a supportive school can play. This course draws on the experiences and best practice outlined by over 1000 school staff and hundreds of students who have overcome self-harm or eating disorders. We aim to provide you with a wide range of ideas and strategies, and renewed confidence in your ability to support students causing concern.

  • Understand what self-harm and eating disorders are and why people develop them
  • Use risk factors and warning signs to determine who needs support
  • Handle difficult conversations with students sensitively
  • Respond appropriately to self-harm incidents at school
  • Work with parents and peers to support student recovery
  • Use a range of practical strategies to support students in school
  • Make referrals to CAMHS when escalation is appropriate
