The Out of Harm Tool Kit is a resource for family, teachers and other professionals who have contact with a young person they are worried about. It has been developed with young people from Penumbra's North Ayrshire Self Harm Project with experience of self-harm.
The aim of this resource is not to teach you everything you need to know about self-harm, but instead to build confidence in approaching the issue with young people and laying the foundations for learning more about an individual's experiences.
The toolkit has been developed through a creative collaboration with young people from Penumbra's North Ayrshire Self Harm Project with experience of self-harm, therapeutic storyteller Wendy Woolfson, photographer Lisa Craig and illustrator Josie Valley. It consists of a conversation guide, a full toolkit with background information and links to further resources, photographs, films and stories.
