Alice managed to fit a lot into the hour, I’d like to attend Self-harm Alert now and Suicide Alert to learn more.

Really useful introduction to the subject that’s left me wanting more. I had a fixed idea of what I thought self harm was and who did it, and this has expanded my understanding, thank you.
