Self-Harm Awareness Training

Self-harm Network Scotland is passionate about raising awareness and reducing stigma around self-harm. Our aim is to develop and deliver informative and accessible training and resources to help improve understanding of self-harm. We have developed a number of different training opportunities that will enable you to choose the best option for you, your organisation and your training needs. You’ll notice that most of our sessions have a max capacity for attendees. However, we are happy to deliver multiple sessions in your workplace if required. Best of all, all of our training is free!
