It is important to be aware of the differences between an attempted suicide and an incident of self harm. Risk assessments will be quite different for the 2 and our interventions will be amended accordingly. This video therefore begins to distinguish between the 2.
This is a popular myth which is factually incorrect in most cases, is very unhelpful in a situation where self harm as taken place and is overall and unprofessional way of approaching the issue of why young people self harm. It is important therefore to dispel this myth.
