Support at Harmless
Harmless is a user led organisation that provides a range of services about self harm and suicide prevention including support, information, training and consultancy to people who self harm, their friends and families and professionals and those at risk of suicide.
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.
Feel free to look around and we welcome your thoughts and feedback about our site and services.
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.
For more information or to volunteer your time and fundraising skills to keep these vital services going, please contact us.
The Harmless Approach
We believe in hope and recovery. We place people with lived experience at the heart of our service, ensuring that we deliver a broad range of service options to meet a variety of needs. Working across age and gender we do our very best to surround the people we help with compassion and practical help and support.

Photography project- we need you! We are currently recruiting individuals to our suicide awareness photography project. If you have been touched by suicide in some way, either through your own battle of lived experience, supporting someone you love in this battle or tragically lost someone to suicide and want to take part, we want to hear from you. All we need you to do is send us your name and phone number and a sentence about your experiences and we will put you in touch with our photographer. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org The images will form part of an exhibition to mark world suicide prevention day and shoots will happen in and around Nottingham.
BIG NEWS! Suicide Prevention and Bereavement Centre Receives Government Backing! Yesterday the government announced the 51 successful projects for its Beyond Places of Safety Fund. The new scheme is aimed at helping improve the provision of health-based Places of Safety for those detained under S135 and S136 of the Mental Health Act and to improve services for people who are vulnerable to or recovering from a mental health crisis. Our primary care crisis service prevents s136. We applied many months ago for funds and have waited for what seems like such a long time to hear a decision. 50th on the long list of 51, and after a long and anxious scroll through, I saw our name. We’ve been funded. In brief what this means is that we’ve been awarded enough money to buy our property in Nottingham from which to run our suicide specialist services in self harm, suicide crisis and bereavement. No changes to our current provision will be made as a result in the immediate future. We applied many months ago for funds and have waited for what seems like such a long time to hear a decision. For the first time in Nottinghamshire there will be a secure and thriving provision all under one roof. It’s own roof! We’re still a little shocked that this has happened because finances have been tight and testing for a long while, but for now we hope this sends out a message of hope... this service will have a permanent roof over its head. We are going nowhere. In 2007 when our service was delivered from the kitchen side at home, who’d have believed it?!Anything can happen if you believe in it enough and fight hard enough. If you need us, we will be here. We know that now for sure.
