A free webinar for professionals interested in learning more about what parents want to know about adolescents’ self-harm will take place on Friday, April 22 next from 2-3pm.
It will highlight the key findings of a collaborative research project exploring parents’ information needs regarding supporting an adolescent engaged in self-harm.
Professor Eilis Hennessy from the School of Psychology at University College Dublin (UCD) is the principal investigator of this collaborative project between UCD and Pieta which has been funded by the National Office of Suicide Prevention.
Professor Hennessy’s research addresses stigma experienced by children and adolescents (aged 8 to 24 hours) who have mental health and behavioural problems.
As part of this research programme she and her colleagues have developed and published questionnaires for measuring mental health stigma; examined the perception of stigma experienced by young people and their families, and worked with mental health charities to reduce stigma in secondary school pupils.
