Testimonials & feedback
Really insightful, and different to other workshops I’ve been to about self-harm that just usually talk about self-harm as a coping strategy. I feel like I’ve got lot’s of additional tools to help me help the young people we support.Self Harm Alert participant
Feel more confident and aware of what self-harm can mean for someone and the importance of understanding this before suggesting alternatives.Self Harm Alert participant
3 hours well spent. Alice was clear, concise and thorough in a sensitive way. I would like to attend the ASIST workshop now after understanding why we should also ask about suicide.Self Harm Alert participant
