Self Harm Support at Harmless

Harmless is a user led organisation that provides a range of services about self harm including support, information, training and consultancy to people who self harm, their friends and families and professionals.

Harmless was set up by people who understand self harm 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. We would also encourage everyone who feels able to complete our self harm questionnaires as this will help us develop a better awareness of who is accessing Harmless and the kind of difficulties they face.

Funding for Self Harm Services

Harmless now deliver a range of services. We previously delivered these under contract with Nottinghamshire Heathcare Trust but these funds were lost due to the financial cuts. However, we still deliver monthly drop in sessions where people can get support and information about self harm and we offer one to one therapy sessions.

For more information or to volunteer your time and fundraising skills to keep these vital services going, please contact us.

The Harmless Advisory Group

We are always looking for people to join our advisory group, and to help out with all aspects of the project, for anyone who is interested in helping out in any way; click here if you'd like to support our efforts and help people who self harm for more details.

Harmless’ CEO in the running for International Humanitarian Leadership Award for her suicide prevention work; please spare a second to vote for her. (Voting is open now and closes on the 24th August. Support Caroline Harroe. Follow the link, https://toyp.jci.cc, scroll to her profile and then click ‘like’.) In November, Harmless CEO was awarded recognition as one of the UK’s Ten Outstanding Young People (TOYP) for her work in the field of self harm and suicide prevention, overcoming her own experiences of mental health to promote recovery in others. Harmless’ services have had a reach of over 100,000 individuals in the last ten years, helping to save thousands of lives and reaching those who wouldn’t otherwise have had a place to go for help and understanding. JCI TOYP serves to formally recognise young people who excel in their chosen fields and create positive change. By recognising these young people, JCI raises the status of socially responsible leaders in this world. The honourees motivate their peers to seek excellence and serve others. Their stories of discovery, determination and ingenuity inspire young people to be better leaders and create better societies. Nominated originally in the category of ‘Business, economic and entrepreneurial accomplishment’ Caroline stood alongside other UK honourees such as Paralympian David Weir, to receive her award. However, we have recently learned of Caroline’s success in being put forward as one of the top 20 young people in the world. Over 209 individuals had been recognised for their work in their respective countries and only 20 have been selected to compete in the final stage of judging. Voting is now open for a week and the result of the public vote and panel decision will secure a place in the top ten of this highly competitive international competition and if successful Caroline will head to Amsterdam to receive her accolade alongside other international young people. Caroline says: ‘to achieve any kind of recognition at a UK level was both astounding and wonderful. I have applied a business model to creating a successful life saving suicide prevention enterprise. Having an opportunity and a platform to communicate about this work means, in spite of any recognition for me, that suicide is something we can talk about. Giving me the opportunity to talk on an International platform about something so vital to my life is more than I could ever ask for and I only hope that I can make it to Amsterdam for those reasons alone.’ We hope that the UK will get behind Caroline in taking her suicide prevention message of hope and recovery into an international platform. Voting is open now. Support Caroline. Follow the link, https://toyp.jci.cc, scroll to her profile and then click ‘like’. Thank you for helping us to join the international conversation on suicide prevention and for supporting Caroline in recognition of her Humanitarian Leadership.
