Hi. We're a project dedicated to supporting young people impacted by self-harm, providing a safe space to talk, ask any questions and be honest about what's going on in your life.

We believe harming isn't a helpful way of coping with life, but we know the journey to recovery can be difficult. Many of us involved in running this site have self-harmed in the past, so we know what it feels like.

We also hope parents and friends of someone harming will find plenty of advice and encouragement. We realise it can be tough to know what to say or how to help. This site is here to support you too.

selfharmUK is part of Youthscape, a registered UK charity that's been working to support young people aged 11 to 19 since 1993.
