Please help… be the first to add a comment on our website shop.

As many of you are aware, Harmless sells a variety of resources such as a DVD, workbook, book and other helpful products that help promote recovery and self belief to people who self harm and to enhance understanding for those who support them. The money we raise also goes directly towards helping us continue delivering our vital services .

Our new website shop allows those who own our resources to review them and let others know about their experiences of using the product. Currently we have no comments on any of our products and we would really love to hear what you think.You don’t have to have purchased your product via the shop to review a product; if you have any of our resources regardless of where you got them from, you can add a comment.

Please rate our products and consider: How helpful was the product? Did it help with recovery? Did the resource match the description we provide about the product? Was it value for money? Would you recommend the product to anyone else? What would you like to see included in future products?

You can add a comment by simply visiting our shop and locating the product you would like to review. Next to the picture and under the price is a review section which says ‘write a review.’ Please note: You are not required to fill in your real name (unless you want to). You may prefer to use a pseudonym that doesn’t identify you or remain anonymous.
