This exceptional online training resource comprehensively explores self-harm and its surrounding issues, training you to respond appropriately.

Self-harm is far more common than people realise, with many self-harmers tending to hide their injuries. It’s therefore crucial that you recognise the signs and identify the causes quickly so you can provide the care and support needed, when it’s needed.

A ‘must have’ for induction, refresher, management and vocational training.

Plus, every trainee receives a FREE training certificate on completion of the course!


SCTV is the only online care training provider to be accredited by the BAC as well as CPD, assuring you of best quality training and service.
