Harmless was set up by people who understand these issues and at the heart of our service is a real sense of hope. We know that with the right support and help life can get better. We hope that you find this site a safe and helpful resource.

Self Harm & Suicide Prevention Services

Harmless now deliver a range of services and also deliver The Tomorrow Project. In the last ten years we have delivered contracted and funded work for a variety of providers, but are largely self-funded through the selling of training etc. This enables us to preserve long-term and compassionate help for all those that need us.

We provide drop-in, crisis café, short and long-term support and psychotherapy. Under The Tomorrow Project we additionally deliver suicide crisis and bereavement services.

On the 10th of September 2018 we are hosting a photography exhibition to mark #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. The exhibition is of people who have been touched by suicide in some way, either through their own battle of lived experience, supporting someone they love in this battle or tragically lost someone to suicide. We are searching for printers to support with the printing of the photographs. As you know we are a not for profit organization and the therapy we provide is free, all the money we raise provides support to our clients which is why we are seeking support from the community in this. Can you help us? Or do you know someone who could? We are looking to print 10 – 15 images for the exhibit. If so, please call 01158800280 or email info@harmless.org.uk Thank you, The Harmless and TP team http://www.harmless.org.uk/blog/can-you-help-4.html
