With New Years Eve on the horizon it’s important to keep talking. It can be a difficult time for lots of people, some who are saying goodbye to a painful year, some who are not looking forwards to the future in quite he way they would hope. Keep an eye on those people with whom you share your world and offer them a kind word if they don’t appear to be celebrating the new year in style.
Remember that it’s ok to ask for help of you need it, and stay safe everyone.
Wishing you all the best for the New Year and we are here if you need anything.
It’s Christmas!!!!! Well, nearly…..
After a busy and successful year at Harmless, the staff are having two weeks off so we can prepare for what we hope will be an even better 2013. Although our office will be closed over the festive period, a volunteer will still be answering support emails.
Harmless would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped and supported us during the past year. With your ongoing kindness and generosity, Harmless hope to achieve much more in the upcoming year as we aim to save more lives and continue provide support those who self harm, and their friends and families.
So from everyone at Harmless….. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you in 2013.

Harmless is working with a local community to set up a suicide prevention project in response to two related suicides. After consultation with the community the final project name was chosen by two brave women who have been bereaved by suicide. The project name is ‘The Tomorrow Project’ and you will soon be able to find out more as the project begins to take shape. We are determined to save lives and ease the pain of those effected by suicide.
Please give us your ideas- we are currently trying to set up a suicide prevention project but we need a name. We have had some suggestions so far which we will list here, but please give us your ideas, your feedback and suggestions. If there is anything you like – let us know. The name is really important, it needs to be clear, no acronymns, and something that would reach lots of different people.
Ideas so far:
‘It stops here’
‘The tomorrow project’
We need the name for the project by the weekend – so please spread the word and ask people to send us their ideas or their feedback and if they don’t want to do it publicly, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
New figures suggest that self harm has become the fastest rising cause of calls for help to the ChildLine advice line with a 68% annual increase. The report suggests that self harm is affecting more younger children, appearing for the first time as a leading concern among 14-year-olds.
