Nottingham Self-harm Charity See Cases Increase by 82 per cent

harmless-pic12Nottingham charity Harmless has reported a 82 per cent increase in the number of people who self-harm in the last six months.

The charity works with people across Nottinghamshire helping them towards recovery by providing psychological support, advice and therapy.

Set up in 2007 Harmless was previously funded by the Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust however due to the financial cuts the charity now receives no government funding.

However Harmless is still managing to provide monthly drop in sessions and one to one therapy sessions for people who self-harm.

Statistics show that one in ten people in the UK self-harm and in Nottinghamshire 75 per cent of people asked said they would not seek help if they self-harmed.

To mark its 7th anniversary and raise funds the charity is holding an evening of celebration on October 10.

The event will take place at the Riverbank Pub in West Bridgford and will include a three course meal, live entertainment, a silent auction, games and a raffle.
