We would like to understand what professionals who come into contact with young people who may have experience of self-harm, think about the potential of the CaTS-App, a digital tool to improve shared understanding, assessment and support around self-harm within their work setting.
The tool is designed to be used collaboratively with a young person and will support communication and shared understanding of support needs. To ensure that we develop a tool that achieves this aim, we are involving key stakeholders in this development work, including young people, parents, and staff from across education, health, social care and charity and voluntary sectors who come into contact with young people who self-harm.
