We provide fantastic information about self-injury and while we never tell anyone to ‘stop’, we do support people as and when they choose to make changes in their lives.
LifeSIGNS is the user-led small charity creating understanding about self-injury. Founded in 2002, it’s our continuing mission to guide people who hurt themselves towards new ways of coping, when they’re ready for the journey.
Text Shout to 85258
Shout is the UK’s first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. It’s a place to go if you’re struggling to cope and you need immediate help.
Shout is powered by a team of volunteers, who are at the heart of the service. We take people from crisis to calm every single day.
Shout exists in the US as ‘Crisis Text Line’, but this is the first time the tried and tested technology has come to the UK.
The anonymised data we collate gives us unique insights into mental health trends to help improve people’s lives.
