Our blog is important to us because it helps us to convey a range of issues around self harm and suicide to the public. It helps us reach people in distress and promote better understanding about these issues amongst our readers.
It helps us tell you about our work, upcoming events, dispel myths and offer advice. But we also want it to challenge stigma and to offer real stories about self harm and recovery so that people reading this can feel connected to what we do and who we help.
If you would like to write a blog for us about your experiences, then you can submit this to email@example.com with the title ‘blog post’. In your email, please tell us what name you would like us to use for you. You can say as little about your identity as you want.
The blog should be about 200 -300 words in length and shouldn’t be graphic in any way, but should offer the reader an insight into your experiences that might help them relate to self harm, distress, or suicide. The blog could be about what you’ve felt or experienced, what’s helped, or not helped… What needs to change, or what the stigma around these issues has been for you.
It is vital to us that we represent your voice and your experiences, so if you feel you can contribute to this blog, please do.
We look forward to hearing from you.
