FamilySmart The “In the Know” Topic for April: Self-Harm: Overwhelming Emotions and Coping Skills.” video presentation

Learning that your child is self-harming can be scary and overwhelming. Self-injury takes many forms and the reason why someone self-injures is complex. Hear from a young adult with lived experience and a Healthcare Professional as they discuss what self-harm is, why youth self-injure, and other options for healthy coping strategies.

Monday, March 23rd from 6-8pm at the Squamish Public Library. Please RSVP and/or contact me if you have any other questions, Trudie Neubert
