      The Graduate Certificate in Managing Youth Self-Harm and Suicide has been developed by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Youth Mental Health in collaboration with Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health to equip the mental health workforce with the latest theory, research and evidence-based practice guidelines on the detection, prevention and management of self-harm and suicide-related behaviours in young people.

      The course is delivered wholly online, and provides students with a comprehensive overview of the epidemiology of self-harm and suicide in young people, key features of the suicidal process, principles of assessing risk of self-harm and suicide-related behaviours, and evidence-based approaches to prevent, monitor and manage self-harm and suicide risk in clinical and community settings.
