Is there help available for people that self-harm or self-injure?
No Secrets is a local voluntary group that was created to provide support for those affected by self-injury, and they operates through six locally based peer support groups that meet up on a weekly basis. Groups are run by volunteers who have had personal experience of self-harm, and there is a non-judgemental environment for people to come and be accepted for who they are.
The National Self-Harm Network is a national charity that provides general information and a telephone helpline (0800 622 6000) service for individuals who self-harm, their friends/family and carers.
Self-help books and CDs are available to help with self-harm through the 'Books on Prescription' service available at your local library.
Further information about self-harm can also be found via the Mental Health Directory and Mind.
CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) is about supporting men, particularly those aged 15-35. It’s about giving you a break, a way of getting things off your chest and sorting your head out.

They provide a helpline (0800 58 58 58) and a website full of information, blogs and stories on issues relating to depression and suicide.
