Cutting and other forms of self-harm are more common then we think. Some people harm their own bodies because it makes emotional pain more bearable, others because it allows them to express their feelings. Although self-injury affects people from all walks of life, it particularly affects girls and young women.

Come along to our self-injury awareness day. Find out more about the causes of self-harm, how to support people you think may be struggling with it, or how to make positive changes in your life and behaviour if you are affected by it.

Information will also be available on where to find more specialist help and support.
