Self Harm – parent help in Cambridgeshire
Over the last two years, Pinpoint has helped parents whose children and young people have been self-harming. Our monthly support group is no longer running but we are working with other charities and county partners to develop a co-ordinated approach to supporting families affected by self harm.
In the meantime, we have resources to share, including some useful tips and strategies. You can also contact Eve Redgrave – email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Pinpoint office on 01480 877333.
‘The Parent’s Guide to Self-Harm’ by Jane Smith as an extremely useful source of information.
We have copies available to parents on request.
