No Secrets currently provide peer-support to those affected by self-injury. We are a voluntary group and non of our volunteers are paid for their time.
We provide training to local professionals around self-injury however it seems that accident and emergency and other medical staff think that this is not relevant to them.
ANYBODY can be affected by self-injury, and if you are working in healthcare of any kind you should be appropriately trained to deal with self-injury.
We, the undersigned, call on the World Health Organisation to help increase understanding of self-injury by providing guidelines for mandatory training for medical/psychiatric staff.
The Self-injury support petition to World Health Organisation (WHO) was written by kerri jones and is in the category Health at GoPetition.
