selfharmUK is a project dedicated to supporting young people impacted by self-harm.
Self-harm is an umbrella term for any behaviour, action or habit, which can cause damage to your health. This can include cutting, but also includes overeating, taking drugs, smoking and drinking too much alcohol. It’s a wide area that covers a whole range of actions.
Deliberate self-harm is a term used when someone intentionally injures or harms him or herself. We all have accidents and end up with cuts and bruises through no fault of our own - but it's the cuts and bruises that we cause ourselves on purpose that are classified as self-harm.
selfharmUK provides a safe space to talk, ask any questions and be honest about what's going on in your life. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
