Growing up with a lot of girlfriends- I can really relate to Andrew’s talk. These issues need to be addressed as it’s very common. Well done Generation Next for uploading that and I would love to sell the remaining segment of this.
Its important to note that while self harm mainly effects young girls it also occurs in all age groups right up to the elderly.
I would have to agree with Sheena on this issue, as it really must be addressed, especially in the high school years when young people are quite vulnerable and susceptible to peer pressure. If these issues were raised and discussed earlier it would definitely be beneficial.
Disappointed that we did not hear the end of the discussion around suicide and self harm. It got cut off .
Other than that as usual Andrew was clear and illuminating about the issue
that’s coming in the next issue!
I found this very interesting, a lot of the teenagers I work with have or do self harm on a regular basis. Its another issue that is rarely dealt with or brought up in schools. I have forwarded the link to a number of my colleagues and we are all patiently waiting for the rest of the interview!
In my experience in adult mental health, the young person focused/led “strong bond” with therapists treating young people is extremely problematic once they are hospitalised and require a team of clinicians to work with them around the clock. I’ve seen this lead to further self harm and an escalation in negative behaviour as there isn’t 24 hour access to their case worker/CAMHS therapist. At what age is it appropriate to treat them as an adult?
Brilliant. Thankyou. i deal with many young female clients at school and agree with the statement of “the bond” that forms. It is long term and the support they need can be quite intense. I will forward this to the parents of the young ladies I work with. looking forward to the final instalment.
I always enjoy listening to Andrew Fuller, this segment on Self Harm was very informative I would love to here the rest of the interview
Excellent! PLEASE can we have more from Andrew about mental health issues effecting teenagers and young people??!! ( EG: OCPD and teenagers..?) / Etc..??
Generation Next is an exciting new initiative featuring a national seminar series and supporting resources aimed at protecting and enhancing the wellbeing of our children and teenagers.
