East Sussex Children and Young People Self-Harm Survey
East Sussex Community Voice are asking people aged between 16 and 24, who live in the County of East Sussex (excluding Brighton and Hove) to complete a survey to help improve early support for young people in East Sussex who self-harm (or are at risk of self-harm).
Self-harm can be defined as ‘the act of deliberately causing harm to oneself either by causing a physical injury, by putting oneself in dangerous situations and/or self-neglect’.
This survey, co-produced with young people, will help ESCV to gain a better understanding of :
- young people’s awareness of, and access to self-harm information.
- the role of support networks
- young people’s views and experiences of the initial support they may have received in relation to self-harm
Please note ESCV are not seeking to establish prevalence of self-harm locally, or to understand the details of individuals’ self-harm behaviours.
This work has been commissioned by East Sussex County Council and the findings of this survey will contribute towards a needs assessment being undertaken by the County Council and other partners which will help inform how locally we can best:
- prevent self-harm in children and young people
- respond to children and young people who are self-harming
How to take part
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and after completing respondents can enter a prize draw to win one of three £50 vouchers.
