A group for those who have lived experience of self-harm or self-injury. This includes a range of issues, ranging from cutting, to skin-picking, to hair-pulling and other behaviours. Run by and for service users and those who have self-harmed, it offers a supportive environment in which to share experiences, coping techniques, and the opportunity to talk to others.
It is not a clinical service, but a peer support and self-help group aimed at those for whom existing services don’t quite meet all their needs, and it works to complement, not to replace professional medical help.
