Resource hub

We work hard to develop useful resources around the issue of self harm that can either develop awareness and understanding, or act as a source of help and support for people.
We are always open to suggestions of resources that are needed and not yet available so please do get in touch if you have any constructive suggestion and we will see what we can do, otherwise have a look around.
We hope that you find what you are looking for.

Harmless DVD

Out of Harm’s Way is a DVD is a resource that can be used by people that self harm, to promote recovery and self belief. It can also be used by professionals or carers to enhance understanding, empathy and strategies that are helpful when supporting people that self harm.

Through the eyes of those with first hand experience, we will examine the nature of self harm, distress, and recovery.


“This DVD has helped me so much. I have struggled to understand my son’s self harm but even this short trailer has given me more empathy and willingness to understand. For the first time – something hopeful about self harm!”

We speak to Jenny, Mark, Fiona and Satveer who have personal experience of self harm and whose courage in speaking out has enabled them to discuss their experiences on film.

This exploration of four very different struggles will highlight the very individual issues faced by people who self harm, including treatment by medical staff, disability, alcohol use and culture.

We also speak with leading professionals, who can offer practical and professional information about working with people who self harm.
This comprehensive resource has a section where you can download enlightening and useful resources, such as poetry, leaflets, posters and a workbook to promote awareness and intervention for self harm.

Harmless Workbook

Harmless have developed this workbook in collaboration with service users, therapists and the Institute of Mental Health to provide a tool that can be used to promote recovery and self reflection amongst people that self harm.
The workbook provides a series of activities to work through to help the individual to start to reflect upon their way/s of coping, and to begin to manage these differently.
The workbook is not a substitute for counselling or therapy, but it is designed to help naturally promote some of the insight that can be helpful to help people move forwards in their life. The belief behind the book is that by promoting awareness, insight and resilience amongst people that self harm, they can start to cope differently, or feel better.

To Someone Who Self Harms

“This workbook is designed to help you think about the things that have led you to self harm, to look at what things might help you cope in your life, and how you can take care of yourself. The exercises are for you to think about your thoughts and feelings, and any experiences that may have caused you difficulty. It will also ask you to reflect upon your self harm.”

“You might find that this workbook is useful to re-visit over a period of time, as you may feel different at different times in your life. It is important to develop an awareness of your self harm, as this will help you take control in different ways, in future.”


The workbook also provides a number of worksheets that can be used as much as is necessary, and a resource section that can help with coping strategies and diet. The workbook is available from our shop in electronic format.
