Self-Injury Awareness Training


Finding a Lifeline

Welcome to Lifelines online training and information on self-harm (intentional self-injury). The information in this website is for people who have no previous training in this area. It will give you an overview of the area of self-harm and how those who do self-harm can be supported. Many myths, misconceptions and misunderstandings and deliberate self harm continues in our society. This training and the acoompanying protcol - Lifelines (Download in PDF format) looks to challenge these myths and misconceptions so that we can develop a shared understanding of deliberate self-harm that is based on fact not fiction. There are six sections to progress through, each with questions which will challenge your knowledge and understanding. You must complete each section before you can move on to the next section. Once you have completed a section you can stop and save your work and return to the website at another time. Once you have completed these sections you will be awarded a certificate of completion.
