Self harm and wellbeing training for schools and colleges

Harmless have a substantial history of working with schools, colleges and education establishments to uphold their learning around self harm. Our range of packages can be tailored to meet the needs of staff and students alike.

We offer PSHE packages for students as well as teacher and pastoral staff training.

PSHE Lessons and Student Packages

Rates of self harm amongst young people are high, with estimates of up to a third of 11-19 year olds having engaged with some self harming activity during this time.

Harmless can work with your school to develop workshop based, classroom experiences for students aged 11+. Work with students is a successful way of developing awareness of self harm amongst young people and their peer groups.

Training for Teaching and Pastoral Staff

Harmless can deliver young people specific packages of training suitable for learning and staff development days, of varied length and intensity.

Harmless is experienced in working with young people, and in supporting the education sector to meet the psychological needs of their students. The National Inquiry into Self-harm among Young People advocates that services engaged with young people, specifically schools and colleges, should consider the roll out of self harm training for their staff.
