Our partners at Every Life Matters have produced these helpful pocket guides about self-harm. There are four available:
🔴 What you need to know about self-harm
🔴 A guide for parents and carers
🔴 Safety Planning
🔴 Local and National Support
These are available to download from www.every-life-matters.org.uk/self-harm/

Using alcohol and substances to cope or when you are struggling is a form of self-harm and we can help you with this. Please call 0800 2 54 56 58 or email contact@cadas.co.uk for support.

The helplines below can help you with self-harm and/or suicidal thoughts. In an emergency call 999 for an ambulance.
