Samaritans supported the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Suicide and Self-harm prevention’s inquiry into the support available for young people who self-harm.
In undertaking the inquiry, the APPG brought together experts through oral evidence sessions, as well as collecting written evidence, to better understand what services exist for young people who self-harm, how effective these are, and how they can be improved.
We, at Harmless we’re privileged to give evidence at one of the oral evidence sessions and are proud to have given a voice to those that we help and hopefully to the other services like ours, doing critical work.
Give it a read and be a part of the change that’s required.
We’ve made the recommendations into audios where young people give their voice.
Watch, listen and learn.
