Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a Trainer for Harmless.
My role is to connect with as many people as possible and raise awareness and knowledge around the areas of self-harm and suicide. I will also be contributing towards the development of the training programme. Training is given in order to meet people’s needs but, just as importantly to inspire prevention.
I am a new member of Harmless and am very excited to be working for such a remarkable organisation. Harmless has truly overwhelmed me by the amount it has achieved through such a small yet astounding group of people. Every member gives their all to provide a voice to those that are unheard and support those who feel alone.
My background is mainly in education, both primary and secondary. I have been a teacher and also worked as a part of a pastoral team in schools. As a result this has brought me into close contact with many of the trials and tribulations young adolescents experience. I also have personal experience of self-harm and as a result believe passionately in the value and importance of organisations such as Harmless. I believe Harmless provides support and hope to many, something which was not available to me when I was young.
By working with Harmless I am hoping to reach out to the nation, and even beyond, to enlighten minds and provide hope.
