Self-harm Support

Self-harm is when somebody intentionally damages or injures their body. It is a way of expressing deep emotional feelings such as low self-esteem, or a way of coping with traumatic events, such as the death of a loved one. Self-harm is an expression of personal distress, rather than an illness, although it can be linked to other mental health conditions such as depression.

Below you will find links to groups and agencies who can offer support and advice on self-harming.
