LifeSIGNS

Description:

LifeSIGNS is a small user-led charity creating understanding about self-injury.  Founded in 2002, their mission is to guide people who hurt themselves towards new ways of coping.

Self-harm is an umbrella term that includes a variety of actions that may damage or cause harm to a person. Self-injury falls under the umbrella of self-harm, and is a direct act that causes injury or damage to your body.

LifeSIGNS believe that the intention of self-injury is to release tension and seek relief from distress, and they focus on the the fact that people rely on self-injury as a coping mechanism.  While they never tell anyone to ‘stop’, they do support people as and when they choose to make changes in their lives, by providing lots of helpful information about self-injury, including factsheets that can be downloaded from their website.

For further information or to ask a question about self-injury, visit their website, or follow LifeSIGNS on social media using the links.
