Call for greater self harm and suicide prevention work in schools

This morning, the Gem fm campaign turns it’s attention to
what work can be done with schools to improve education for
students around the issue of self harm and suicide prevention. Gem
talk to East Leake Academy, who, after tragic circumstances worked
closely with Harmless and The Tomorrow Project to ensure that the
best possible support was offered to its students. Nottingham
academy speaks about their determination to undertake work of a
similar nature following an increase in self harming as an issue
amongst its students. The Tomorrow Project is able to work with
schools and communities effected by suicide or high rates of self
harm to ensure that all individuals have access to good quality
information about the subjects – we can do talks and group work, or
talk with projects to see what help is most needed. If you would
like to learn more about our work and what we can do for your
school or project, please contact tomorrow@harmless.org.uk or call
