The 'Pink Book' - Self-harm and suicidal behaviour

The ‘Pink Book’ offers guidance for staff working with children and young people in North Yorkshire under the age of 18 (under 25 for those with disabilities or for care leavers) who self-harm or feel suicidal. It is targeted at professionals who work with children/young people in a wide range of settings. This resource can be used as a prompt for discussions about organisational approaches to working with self-harm and suicidal intent, or to highlight individuals’ skills or training needs.

Please share this with colleagues as appropriate – it is intended for non-clinical staff in front line roles who may encounter young people who are or might be self-harming.

The Pink Book is available from:
