We've produced a series of expert podcasts to help parents understand and manage child and family mental health problems.
The series, Child in Mind, is presented by BBC Radio 4 presenter Claudia Hammond. In each 20-minute episode, she discusses an important issue in child and family mental health with an expert and a young person or parent.
Self-harming behaviour is becoming more common according to recent statistics, and particularly among young people between 16 and 25 years But what is self-harming behaviour, why do people do it and what help is available for those affected?
Claudia Hammond discusses these topics with Dr Trudie Rossouw, a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, and Grace, a 23 year old woman who self-harmed between the ages of 16.
This podcast includes material that some people may find disturbing.
