APPENDIX III

Self-harm: Guidelines for School Staff

These guidelines (pp.202–223, marked ✓) maybe photocopied for use by teachers and professionals supporting young people, but any material copied or used must be acknowledged and fully referenced.

These guidelines were produced as the result of collaboration between Oxfordshire Education Department, Oxford Samaritans, Oxfordshire Mental Healthcare Trust and the Department of Social and Health Care. They were written by the Adolescent Self-Harm Steering Group to help school staff to support young people who harm themselves.

The guidelines are primarily intended for use in secondary schools and should be read in conjunction with the Area Child Protection Committee (ACPC) guidelines 2002. Anyone wishing to publish excerpts from the guidelines should contact:

Oxfordshire Adolescent Self-Harm Forum c/o Highfield Family and Adolescent Unit The Warneford Hospital Warneford Lane Headington Oxford OX3 75X
