Self Injury Helpline – 0808 800 8088 (freephone from landlines and most mobile networks)
Open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 19:00-21:30
Run by Self Injury Support, the self injury helpline is for women of any age or background affected by self-injury, whether their own or that of a friend or family member.
Call us for free, confidential, non-judgemental emotional support around self-injury.
All calls are answered by female volunteers who have received specialist training.
You don’t have to be in crisis or distress at the time you call, and you can talk to us for up to half an hour each time we are open.
As new volunteers come onto the service, part of their training is to listen to calls to learn from experienced volunteers. If you think this is happening when you call the helpline and you don’t want it to continue – just ask and we can stop it straight away.
