Self Harm Conference: From Harm to Hope

Wednesday 1st March 2017

Usual Price £150 per delegate place

 

What is the purpose of the conference?

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Self harm: Suicide prevention starts here’.

Harmless recognises that self harm effects a broad range of individuals, facing many diverse experiences; reducing the number of individuals that self harm requires contributions from across society and includes education, prevention, intervention and postvention work.

This exciting event will bring together private, public, voluntary and community sector organisations, individuals with lived experience of self harm and practitioners & academics in the field of self harm in an ethos of joint working and shared experience.

The conference will address a broad range of skills and learning needs, and provide an opportunity to examine working with a broad client base, including young people and adults.

Our conference is themed around five strategic areas:

Collaborative partnership,

Service user representation,

Effective practice,

Driving change,

Overcoming stigma and discrimination.

 

Delegates can expect to take away from the conference a range of knowledge, inspiration and practical applications for the implementation in real life personal and professional situations. Learning from some of the leaders in the field, delegates will have access to interactive sessions that can drive change in the field of self harm.

Professor Louis Appleby

who leads the National Suicide Prevention Strategy for England.

Save our service from closure

To all of the people we have ever helped, or who have ever believed in our work- we need you.

For the last year we have struggled to find the services that we offer. Our work is held in such high esteem and anyone who’s needed us, knows we save lives. But the funding crisis in the U.K. means it’s become increasingly difficult to survive.

At present, we need to raise 30k to keep our Suicide crisis and bereavement services open.

I know this seems like big money, but it’s made up of small, affordable and generous donations.

Every support session we deliver costs £25 a time, so if you believe in us at all, could you spare that, or a portion of that?

At the minute, every little really does help.

We HATE turning to our community and asking for help, but if we don’t ask you, we may not survive.

Can you help?

Will you share this?

Can you give up the price of a coffee, or a trip out to save someone’s life? Or hold an event, or a sponsored something… anything…

Thank you for reading this. We promise we will keep trying our very best to be there when you need us.

Community Champions

Every year we run a number of events and to make those event happen in a way that reaches everyone that it needs to, we engage with as many corporate sponsors as we are able.

Our community champions help us to widen our offer of help to more people that need it.

Could you be a community champion? 

Are you a company looking for further CSR opportunities? 

Could you donate £1-300 (or more, obviously!!) to help people in distress and their families come along to our help promoting events?

Your money would help us host events that reach people; in return you would receive sponsorship acknowledgment in local press and convene and an update about the social impact you’ve contributed to.

Please share, and thank you and if you want to get involved, please contact admin@harmless.org.uk
