Online course for parents to learn about self harm.

Parents can learn more about mental health, and in-particular self-harm, thanks to an online course called 'Understanding Young Minds'.
Thousands of children and young people in the UK are thought to be impacted by self-harm each year.

Spotting the signs can be difficult, and approaching the subject with your children can be an uncomfortable experience. In fact, 60% of parents say they feel uncomfortable discussing self-harm with their children.

Virtual College has worked in partnership with Selfharm UK to create a free online course designed to help parents talk about the issue of self-harm with their children.

This course will help you to:

  • Know what self-harm is and why young people may do it

  • Know what makes young people vulnerable to self-harming behaviour

  • Understand in what ways you can support a young person who is self-harming

I need to talk   NEW Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health services

We want to ensure that all of our students have access to information and advice in one place, and are aware of local services, that can help support them when experiencing emotional wellbeing, mental health or behavioural concerns.

Please find below a link to a new Lincolnshire health services pathway which is designed to help families of children and young people experiencing emotional wellbeing, mental health or behaviour concerns and the professionals working with them. 

The pathway aims to provide children and young people, and their families, with better access to the right support at the right time.

Should you require any further details or advice regarding any of the available support,  please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Lynda Divers (Deputy Headteacher) at QEGS.

The parents section of the Thinkuknow website provides information to support parents and carers to understand and respond to the risks their children may face as they grow. It covers a broad range of online safety issues from nude selfies to what to do if you think your child is being groomed online. Find it at: www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents.
