What is the self-harm passport?
The self harm passport was developed by young people. Young people felt that in times of crisis, such as going to A&E, staff didn’t respond in a way that helped them or didn’t know how to respond. The passport captures what matters to the young person and informs how they would want to be treated should they have a mental health crisis.
The passport covers the following headings and has versions for under and over 16 years:
- A bit about me
- My treatment options
- Who is important to me
- Anything else I want to say
