Day 2 of #MHAW17 with another busy start from the Training Team.
Sophie Allen attended BBC Radio Nottingham to speak to BBC Radio Leicester breakfast show, to respond to figures of A and E presentations for self harm. But also, importantly, to discuss that actually these figures massively underestimate the prevalence of self harm. Many many people never disclose and live with their distress on their own!
It’s important to start having these conversations to break down the taboo and stigma around self harm. Hopefully by doing so, more people will be encouraged to tell someone they’re not ok. #itsoknottobeok #itsoktotalk
