As many as 10% of young Australians will self-harm at some point in their lives but parents and carers often feel alone when they discover that a loved one is intentionally hurting themselves.
This guide was co-developed by parents and carers of young people, as well as young people themselves.
It is aimed at helping parents, carers, family members and friends cope when a young person is self-harming.
It includes information on the nature and causes of self-harm, how to support a young person when facing this problem and what help is available.
