Welcome to Harmless

Self Harm Support at Harmless

Harmless is a user led organisation that provides a range of services about self harm including support, information, training and consultancy to people who self harm, their friends and families and professionals.

Harmless was set up by people who understand self harm and at the heart of our service is a real sense of hope. We know that with the right support and help life can get better. We hope that you find this site a safe and helpful resource.

Feel free to look around and we welcome your thoughts and feedback about our site and services. We would also encourage everyone who feels able to complete our self harm questionnaires as this will help us develop a better awareness of who is accessing Harmless and the kind of difficulties they face.

Funding for Self Harm Services

Harmless now deliver a range of services. We previously delivered these under contract with Nottinghamshire Heathcare Trust but these funds were lost due to the financial cuts. However, we still deliver monthly drop in sessions where people can get support and information about self harm and we offer one to one therapy sessions.

For more information or to volunteer your time and fundraising skills to keep these vital services going, please contact us.

The Harmless Advisory Group

We are always looking for people to join our advisory group, and to help out with all aspects of the project, for anyone who is interested in helping out in any way; click here if you'd like to support our efforts and help people who self harm for more details.
