The aim of the study was to complete a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the self-harm awareness training delivered in the HSE South and West in order to identify whether the training changed participants’ knowledge, attitudes and confidence in relation to people who self-harm. The objective was then to identify the resources, indicators, barriers to the successful implementation of the training programme.

Participants (N=532) who had completed the self-harm awareness training programme received a self-report questionnaire for the purpose of the training evaluation. Of those contacted, 120 returned a completed questionnaire.

The study revealed significant positive changes post training in terms of increased knowledge, enhanced positive attitudes towards and confidence in dealing with people who engage in self-harm.
