Managing self-harm in young people

Prestons Road, Hayes




Dr Paul McL

Consultant Psychiatrist

Priory Hospital Hayes Grove

Mental Health support in young people is becoming increasingly strained and the support structure available can be hard to access. Many young people who self-harm have mental health issues; followed by suicidal thoughts, often the suicide attempt follows a stressful event in the young person’s life, but in other cases, the young person may not have shown any previous signs of difficulty.

Dr Paul McLaren will discuss the issues young people face, how to deal/support when faced with a young person self-harming, but also how to spot early signs.
