Young people influence self harm research project

Tonight Harmless chaired an advisory group of young people who have been brought together for the Listen Up! Project. This is a research project that will be looking at self harm in looked after young people.

The research project is funded by the Department of Health and headed by Nottingham University.

Prioritising the needs and perspectives of young people with direct experience, the project is encouraging the advisory group to focus their questioning and to place survivor experiences truly at the heart of the project.

Tonight the advisory group made some significant progress in defining the perspectives of the project, from developing a logo and branding that will engage with young people, through to what questions about self harm it is relevant for us to be asking.

We look forward to making further progress and for genuinely facilitating young people that have self harmed to ‘have their say!’
