If you’re a mother of a teen who is struggling with self-harm or suicidal thoughts, you may be finding it hard to know what you, as a mother, can do to best support your child. This is a topic very close to my heart and part of my own journey for the past two years.
If this is you….I want you to know you’re not alone and I get it.
• You may just discovered your child is self-harming and you’re still in a state of shock, anger and upset
• You might have tried and be unable to access mental health services because your child’s self-harming is “just superficial” according to professionals and you don’t know what to do next
• You have been offered support by CAMHS but your teen refuses to engage so it’s just you, doing what you can to manage the situation, with no idea how
• You’ve been to A & E on more than one occasion with your teen as a result of their self-harm or suicidal intent – and feel like you can’t tell friends and family what’s really going on
• Your child’s distress is such that they might be avoiding school, having problems with friendships, have retreated into their bedrooms and you find yourself walking on eggshells for fear of ‘setting them off’
• You feel like a crap mum because you secretly wonder if this is somehow your fault and that you’ve been handed the job of fixing this situation with nothing but a list of helplines as long as your arm
