Selfharm UK

We're a project dedicated to supporting young people impacted by self-harm, providing a safe space to talk, ask any questions and be honest about what's going on in your life.

We believe harming isn't a helpful way of coping with life, but we know the journey to recovery can be difficult. Many of us involved in running this site have self-harmed in the past, so we know what it feels like.

We also hope parents and friends of someone harming will find plenty of advice and encouragement. We realise it can be tough to know what to say or how to help. This site is here to support you too.

Subject Definitions

Self-harm is a way of expressing very deep distress. Often people don't know why they self-harm. It's a means of communicating what can't be put into words or even into thoughts and has been described as an inner scream. Afterwards people feel better able to cope with life again for a while.
Help and support for young people who have, or know someone who has mental health issues.
