Have you been in care? Have you self harmed?

Can you help Listen-Up! with their self harm research?

It is absolutely vital for us to understand more about self-harm and help in the future development of services for young people who self-harm. We want to give you a voice no matter what you’ve been through.

Harmless are working with the Universities of Nottingham and Leicester to increase our understanding of self-harm in young people.

Listen Up are looking to hear from young people who have experienced foster or residential care and young people who have never been in care.

We are looking for young people aged 11-21 who have self-harmed in the last 6 months to take part in our research from anywhere in the UK. What you have to say could help other young people in the future.

There are two studies you could take part in – one involves being interviewed by about your experiences of self-harm. The other study involves taking part in two computer-based interviews over 6 months. You will privately answer questions about self-harm and other issues.

We can cover your travel expenses – meet you in a place of your choosing and we can offer a £15 high-street voucher (per study) as a thank you for your time.

There is additional support available should you need it. Most of all we want your voices to be heard, we are here. We want to help and if you have the courage to tell us your story then we will use your views to make a difference.
