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.

The conference, held at Ewood Park Blackburn as part of self harm awareness 2015, provided an important opportunity for delegates to build skills, knowledge and confidence in supporting children and young people who self harm. Naomi’s presentation explored Harmless’ work in the community and shared numerous proven methods of how to successfully help those who self harm; which we hope will allow professionals within the field to more efficiently aid those who self harm in a proven and effective way. Delivered in the context of a growing evidence base, Naomi explored the data, relationships and vital service user voice in the effectiveness and lessons learned by our service. We were really pleased to asked to be part of the national conference and would like to take this opportunity to thank Mind Lancashire and the event organisers. http://www.harmless.org.uk/blog/harmless-speak-at-national-self-harm-conference.html
