To reassure those affected by self harm that things can and do get better. It’s hard work to come through it and sometimes it gets worse before it gets better, but coming through it is so worth it.
Between 1 in 12 and 1 in 15 children and young people in the UK self harm. It’s often a sign of another mental health problem as is used as a way of relief or escape. It’s dangerous too and can be potentially fatal.
No Harm Done was launched to show people currently struggling with self harm that it is possible to get through it and that the reward is well worth it.
