A Guide to Whole-School Strategies and Practical Support
With steadily increasing incidences of self-harm and eating disorders among students and long waiting lists for specialised support, schools have a more active role than ever in supporting young people with these issues. This guide provides information and guidance on how to help students from whole-school policies to day-to-day strategies.
