harmLESS – CAMHS Referral
It seems as if this young person is regularly harming themselves but does not have any active plans to end their life.
Acts of self-harm without suicidal thoughts are common and fortunately most do not go on to develop serious suicidal plans.
This young person may benefit from CAMHS input. Let their parent/carer know how they are feeling. Agree with the young person a referral to CAMHS.
Remember that harmless is a guide. If you are still unsure or worried about a young person you can phone CAMHS.
