Self Injury Support

Self Injury Support focuses on improving support and knowledge around self-injury

How They Do This

  • offering safe spaces where they listen and never judge, and demonstrating the impact of this support;
  • creating experience-led tools and information on topics clients tell them they want to know about;
  • promoting better models of support through training health and social care workers of the future;
  • working with researchers and policy makers to make sure what people tell them they want is put into practice

What They Do To Make This Happen

  • They run a UK-wide multi-channel support service for women & girls affected by self-injury, trauma and abuse
  • They develop up-to-date, reliable and free information and self help tools for anyone to use
  • They run training and consultancy to share knowledge and expertise with a wide range of staff, especially in health, social care and education
  • They partner with other organisations and researchers to find out directly from those with lived experience of self-injury find helpful in their lives 

The telephone service has re-opened this week after being closed last week. Along with text, email and web chat support services, the volunteers are there to answer your calls and messages every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7pm – 9.30pm (except some holidays).
