Self harm Project
The Children in Care Council have taken on a topic they feel very strongly about,- self harm. A small group are working with Thinking Aloud to explore ways of supporting young people who who may be worried about themselves or a friend dealing with this issue.
These are a couple of the ideas that the group came up with:
Mandi: "I think it would be good to have a buddying project where you have someone a little bit older who you can speak to about self harm and ways that can help."
Tia; "We could make a video which looks at why people do it and things that can help, may be even a music video as some of us can sing!"
If you have any ideas, please do let us know and we will keep you informed as the project develops. Also check out an article on this in the next RVoice magazine.
