Today, our wonderful colleague and friend Val, has left her Senior Therapist role at Harmless. 

Val has been working for Harmless since 2013, but joined our organisation as a volunteer before she started her counselling role.

Over the years, Val has helped countless number of people with their recovery, and for the many who met her, life got better thanks to her valuable support.

On her last day, The Harmless team presented Val with flowers, and a memory book which contained messages from colleagues and photos from her time with us.

From everyone at Harmless and The Tomorrow Project, we wish Val all the very best in the future. She knows that she will always be part of the Harmless family!

#1. Service provision mapping.

As a mental health service in the third sector it is vital our work:

  • Responds to need
  • Doesn’t duplicate other service 

In order to do this in the changing face of services it is vital for us to establish where other services specifications start and stop, and where best we respond to gaps in provision to meet the needs of those experiencing mental distress, self harm and suicide. 

The research intern will identify all relevant statutory services and establish their service specifications (through request or FOI) drawing a visual representation of coverage for both adults and young people in each locality area to demonstrate Harmless’ service fit and business case. 

Applicants can apply by emailing caroline@harmless.org.uk

 

#2. The research intern will work to establish the business case for Harmless and The Tomorrow Projects service. 

As such they will:

A) look at the usage of service (who, what, how) to establish who we are helping and of these, who are eligible or ineligible for other services. 

B) what impact we are having on their outcomes in the short term and longer term, undertaking analysis of in-service and follow data.

The intern will produce a report to document the client journey, the impact received from receipt of service and their changed outcomes because of this. The intern may also use narrative of the clients to tell this story. 

All data collected to evidence this journey has ethical clearance from Nottingham University. 

Ideal for psychology graduate/undergraduate

The Harmless self harm conference #HarmtoHope – The epitome of what Harmless is about…

On 1st March 2017, Harmless was proud to host its 2nd national self harm conference #HarmtoHope which looked at effective services for people that self harm, current thinking and implications for practice.

Whilst most of the plaudits will quite rightly go to our motivational key note speakers, wonderful Chair, brilliant workshop leads and of course, our superb delegates; I wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the fantastic contribution that our own team made.

The conference demonstrated everything that we are about – a passionate team who work together to achieve a feat often outside our modest resources in the hope that it makes a difference to someone, somewhere. It takes a tremendous amount of effort, time and dedication to plan and host a successful conference and we are eternally grateful to everyone involved.

Today, we will continue with our normal day-to-day roles with a sense of pride that the Harmless team achieved something special.   

We look forward to doing the same next year
