Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation Pathway

Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation Pathway

The purpose of the pathway is to improve the referral processes, and the coordination of information, advice, support and treatment that is provided to children and young people who self-harm and/or experience suicidal ideation. The Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation Pathway helps:

  • The speed in obtaining a response to their concerns.
  • The appropriateness of the information, advice, support or treatment that is provided.
  • The positive changes to the child/ young person’s self-harming behaviour and emotional wellbeing.

Who is the document for?

This document and pathway is primarily for frontline staff working with children and young people who:

  • Identify themselves as using self-harm as a coping strategy
  • Require support as a result of disclosing self-harm, suicidal ideation and or previous suicide attempt

Additional guidance and support for children, young people, parents and carers is provided in Parts Four and Five.
