Today is World Mental Health Day

Today is International World Mental Health Day; the day aims to bring together to appreciate the impact and importance of mental health and to strive towards improvements in this area. As a self harm service, we feel strongly that people experiencing self harm, both young and old, have the opportunity to access the help and support they need to face and overcome their difficulties.
Self harm is often a taboo subject, but Harmless will work hard over the next 12 months to increase our public and media presence to influence public perception and reach out to more people.
In the meantime, why not have a look at some of the articles in today’s media about World Mental Health Day.

Harmless Celebration Event was a Great Success!

Friday night’s celebration event was a huge success. There was a great turn out for the event, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. There was great food, and wonderful musicians and really generous and supportive people there – we raised over £1000 on the night. That money will help to save lives by providing self harm services to young people and adults. Everyone at Harmless can’t say a big enough thank you to everyone involved in making this celebration such a wonderful event. We will see you all next year!
