  • describe the motivations and help-seeking behaviours of people who self-harm and associations between self-injury and psychiatric morbidity, suicide and substance use
  • implement key principles of providing an integrated approach in the early identification of help-seeking behaviour for people who self-harm
  • identify challenges, tips and strategies in providing a collaborative response to assist people who self-harm and increase help-seeking behaviour.
