Yesterday, two members of Harmless management team attended the All Party Parliamentary Group for suicide and self harm to promote our work in the field. On the day, there were discussions about how to work with preventing further clusters of suicide in the UK. We know that people aged 15-34 are far more susceptible to cluster behaviour with both self harm and suicide and we hope that Harmless’ self harm work, and The Tomorrow Projects suicide prevention work will enable us to continue our excellent work in the sector.
Our Director, Caroline, was able to speak to the group about our work in Nottinghamshire and suggest some ways forward for the future. We hope that this will be the start to increased awareness about our work on a National level and open up opportunities for great National collaborations. Ultimately we want to improve our work and increase the amount of help we can offer to people who self harm or who might be at risk of suicide.
