Emotional health and wellbeing - resources

We are committed to improving children and young people's mental and emotional health and wellbeing in Salford. We know that issues such as anxiety, low mood, depression, conduct and eating disorders, and family breakdown, separation and loss can impact significantly on their happiness and future life chances. This is an important element of the Salford Thrive Partnership work.

We aim to keep the resource section regularly updated to ensure that anyone who works or volunteers with children and young people have access to up to date and relevant information.

Young people and self-harm

Information and advice for young people and their parents and carers

Levels of self-harm continues to rise amongst our young people and though a taboo subject for many, which adds to stigma and feelings of shame, we need to understand and talk about it more if we are going to find a way to support those affected, provide support at the earliest opportunity and reduce the incidence of self-harm.

The difficulty of understanding why someone may hurt themselves and fear of making things worse can stop us engaging with this difficult issue at all.

NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care has produced information resources for young people and their parents and carers which explain why people may self-harm, how to talk about it and strategies to help young people manage their emotions before they reach a crisis, while highlighting sources of help.

Help is available and no young person should ever suffer alone.
