How we help with self-injury

The Queen's Award for Voluntary ServiceSelf injury Support is a national organisation that supports girls and women affected by self-injury or self-harm.

We have carried out extensive research with women who self-injure, and through our work we have developed a deep understanding of the reasons individuals harm themselves and of the things they may find helpful or supportive.We also have wide experience of the concerns and needs of workers in different settings and disciplines, and in developing good working practice.

Our Resource Hub is a collection of guidance, research and useful educational tools from many different sources and provides a wealth of information for those that self-injure, concerned others and professionals.

We are very grateful to be able to reflect such a wide range of resources from the self-injury community and each download credits the author and provenance. If you have any new contributions for the Resource Hub please do get in touch and help us ensure that everyone has the opportunity to access best practice in self-injury and related areas.
