Self Harm Awareness Day 2018

Today is the 1st of March, International Self Harm Awareness Day. To mark the occasion we are holding our annual national conference.

Come hail or snow, the conference brings together people from across the UK to focus on how we can collaboratively work with those that self harm.

Today we welcome our colleagues to a day of discussion, of presentations and workshops. We will hear from Professor Louis Appleby, Dr Karen Slade, members of the Harmless team, those with lived experience and service providers in a day that aims to promote improved practice.

50% of people that die by suicide have a history of self-harm and so this years conference is focusing upon suicide prevention with our theme being: ‘self harm: suicide prevention starts here!’

Why not tune in throughout the day to our twitter handle #HarmtoHope to hear updates from the day.

#JoinTheConversation and together #LetsSaveLives
