If you have followed the news story regarding the tragic death of Molly Russell (14) you will note that her father places heavy criticism on social media content which sensationalises self-harm and suicide. We cannot deny that our children face many pressures today and are at times, searching desperately for ways to cope. Here at VCB we do not shy away from mental health issues and take an active role in teaching our pupils resilience and healthy coping strategies. If you are concerned that your child is self – harming, please look at the following guide entitled Coping with Self Harm - a guide for parents and carers.
