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.

Day 1: 100 miles from London to Calais, got 2 bed at 11pm- shattered. Up again at 6.30 for Day 2: 71 miles from Calais to Abbeville. Described as 'undulating' - your not kidding! But lots of fast fun descents to match the uphill slogs & a lovely lunch stop by a lake. Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery- didn't want to stop at the end. Only another 130 miles to go to Paris! Whose willing to pay me penny a mile Harmless?

Upcoming EventsView Calendar Cyber-Bullying: The new challenge facing the next generation (Harmless Training) 29/4/2014   9.30am - 1.00pm Harmless, Mansfield Road, Nottingham, United Kingdom (map) It is now estimated that over a billion people use Facebook across the globe with other social media sites such as Twitter and You Tube (and many more) now playing a major part in most of our everyday lives. Although some will argue that social media is a positive phenomenon, this workshop will highlight the challenges that face our young people who now have instant access to an increasing number of social sites. Our training aims to raise awareness and understanding of the issues facing the next generation. It will explore cyber-bullying from the perspective of a young person and the potentially dangerous consequences that social media can have on those who access it. The growing use of apps and smart phones now means most young people have instant access to the internet and social sites 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Do we really know what our children are accessing online and the potential risks involved? Learning outcomes: · We will look at a number of popular social media sites and how they work and the potential risks involved · Explore dangers such as online bullying and the links to suicide and self harm · Discussion on the importance placed by young people on online ‘life’ · Highlight the dangers of anonymity · There will also be some opportunity to explore other issues around cyber-bullying and ask questions (add to my calendar) Adult Drop In (Ages 18+) 7/5/2014   2.30pm - 3.30pm Harmless, Mansfield Road, Nottingham, United Kingdom (map) This service is for anyone who would like support for either themselves or others.
