Self injury Support – UK-wide support channels still open and NEW free self-help resources now available

In the current times of confusion we wanted to clarify that Self injury Support is still open and we are working hard to provide as many accessible resources as possible, alongside running our UK-wide support services by text, email and webchat Tuesday – Thursday 7-9.30pm: https://www.selfinjurysupport.org.uk/our-support-services

Download two pieces of information about our services and our self-help resources. We would appreciate if you could share them as widely as possible. We want people to know we are open and we are still here – if you want to contact us with specific enquiries or suggestions for self-help resources please do get in touch.

We hope you’re all doing as well as you can and that you are able to find even a small window to think about yourself/scream into the void.

Please find a list of all our new resources below – we are working on pdf versions of all sections, but in the meantime please feel free to download/print/share whatever you feel is useful.
