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.

Are you a young person that has self harmed and been in care? Do you want to tell your story? Can you help our research? It is absolutely vital for us to understand more about self-harm and help in the future development of services for young people who self-harm. We want to give you a voice no matter what you've been through. Harmless are working with the Universities of Nottingham and Leicester to increase our understanding of self-harm in young people. Listen Up are looking to hear from young people who have experienced foster or residential care and young people who have never been in care. We are looking for young people aged 11-21 who have self-harmed in the last 6 months to take part in our research from anywhere in the UK. What you have to say could help other young people in the future. There are two studies you could take part in – one involves being interviewed by about your experiences of self-harm. The other study involves taking part in two computer-based interviews over 6 months. You will privately answer questions about self-harm and other issues. We can cover your travel expenses – meet you in a place of your choosing and we can offer a £15 high-street voucher (per study) as a thank you for your time. There is additional support available should you need it. Most of all we want your voices to be heard, we are here. We want to help and if you have the courage to tell us your story then we will use your views to make a difference. To have a chat with someone you can contact Caroline or Adrienne at Harmless info@harmless.org.uk or 0115 9348445 Or speak to the research team directly at listenup@nottingham.ac.uk, call 0115 8467319 or visit the website: http://www.listen-up.ac.uk
