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.

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.

A blog by OrlaghsLittleCorner: Three things a day to spread the positivity 💞 This is not some tedious list on a million things to do to be more positive, cause I know that personally I can only hold about 3 things in my memory at a time. So, here’s my little 3 step guide on how to be more positive and share more postivite vibes. Say hello to more people. People at work or at the gym or who you see at uni everyday. Just more people. Introducing yourself to someone new is exciting, you can widen your friendship circle tons by just saying a hey,hiya,ey’up etc etc. I went through secondary school saying hi to a lot of random people and it was actually the best thing cause you make friends with people you never even thought you would. And it also means you won’t be walking round with your head down on your phone! Smile more! This ones easy. Well easy enough-I totally get that some days smiling is way harder than it should be, but roll with it, everyday has the opportunity for good things. They say laughter is contagious and I believe smiling is too. Smile at strangers and all the things that make you happy. It’s no fun walking round with a frown and your mood will not get better until you ‘turn dat from upside down’. Throw kindness around like confetti. Sprinkle that stuff everywhere! Just be a nice person. So cliche but honestly it’s pretty to the point. Be kind to people, help wherever possible and encourage eachother! Everyone is having some kind of day, good, bad or ugly; so just give a second of kindness, throw some compliments out, hold the door open, help someone with their bags and be a nice human! You are now ready to spread some positivity in the world ✨ Link to the full blog: A blog by OrlaghsLittleCorner: Three things a day to spread the positivity 💞
Could you write a blog for us? Harmless would like to invite you to contribute to our blog. Our blog is important to us because it helps us convey a range of issues around self harm and suicide to the public. It helps us reach people in distress and promote better understanding about these issues amongst our readers. It helps us tell you about our work, upcoming events, dispel myths and offer advice. But we also want it to challenge stigma and to offer real stories about self harm and recovery so that people reading this can feel connected to what we do and who we help. If you would like to write a blog for us about your experiences, then you can submit this to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title 'blog post'. In your email, please tell us what name you would like us to use for you. You can say as little about your identity as you want. The blog should be about 200 -300 words in length and shouldn't be graphic in any way, but should offer the reader an insight into your experiences that mighty help them relate to self harm, distress, or suicide. The blog could be about what you've felt or experienced, what's helped, or not helped... What needs to change, or what he stigma around these issues has been for you. It is vital to harmless that we represent your voice and your experiences, so if you feel you can contribute to this blog, please do. We look forward to hearing from you.
