Building Capacity in East Renfrewshire Employees to Support Young People who Self-Harm

All East Renfrewshire staff will have access to mental health and self-harm training as part of the Self-Harm Framework. Implemented across 3 levels staff members can decide what level of training is most appropriate for them.

Level 1 – For All Staff

All staff members are invited to complete level one self-harm training which consists of self-led online modules. These modules will build understanding and knowledge of mental health self-harm and suicide and the basic skills and confidence to support a child or young person who is self-harming.

NHS Scotland Mental Health Improvement and Prevention of Self-Harm and Suicide Knowledge and Skills Framework

Aimed at those working across education, health and social care settings this framework is designed to enable individuals, their teams and managers identify and understand the values, knowledge and skills expected of them in mental health improvement and the prevention of self-harm or suicide. It will also help identify gaps or strengths in staff knowledge and skills. The framework articulates the knowledge and skills required across 4 levels of practice: informed, skilled, enhanced and specialist.
