Working with Children and Young People who self harm

9th December 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm GMT


In 1997 Newham Asian Women’s Project (NAWP) – now London Black Women’s Project conducted research on the mental health needs of South Asian women and published a report called, ‘Growing Up Young, Asian and Female in Britain: Conflict and Culture’. NAWP’s ground breaking research led to the development of the Zindaagi (meaning ‘life’) service in 1998 – a service focusing on service delivery to young women and working under an early intervention and prevention framework.

Since then NAWP has continued to document cases and support young women into education, employment and other opportunities that were denied them. NAWP has been delivering self harm training for 15 years focusing on young people and
self harm.
