Self-harm versus suicide 


Speaker: Satveer Nijjar

We are delighted to welcome Satveer to Scotland to facilitate this professional learning.  She has a passion for reducing stigma around mental health since she herself became affected. Her experiences as a patient and more recently as a parent of a child with mental illness have helped shape her career. Her focus is upon improving the understanding of and responding to self-harm behaviours as this is often a very taboo topic within mental health sessions.

In 2012 she graduated with a First-Class Honours in Psychology, winning the Bernice McAuley Memorial Prize for her dissertation on self-harm and the role of culture. From this point her focus became on the creation and delivery of sessions on self-harm awareness.

Over the last 6 years she has successfully setup her business named ‘Attention Seekers Training’. Through the business she delivers her own CPD Accredited Self-harm Awareness course nationally alongside PSHE/PDC student sessions, parent awareness sessions, conference talks and workshops. Though the majority of her deliveries are for school based staff and students, she also delivers to housing staff, doctors, nurses, social workers among others.

The sessions are consistently met with excellent feedback with specific comments referring to the delivery style, relevance and enjoyability of the course.

More information about Satveer can be found via her website - ATTENTION SEEKERS?
