·      Exploring the myths and facts around self-harm and suicide

·      Developing awareness of the signs that someone may be self-harming or having thoughts of suicide

·      Enabling people to feel more comfortable and confident talking about self-harm and suicide and appreciate the importance of asking directly

·      Understanding our role in facilitating people to seek support and in keeping someone safe

·      Equipping participants with support resources available locally and nationally, including an understanding of Cumbria Self-harm care pathways
