Last week whilst driving to see my Mum I heard a short but powerful piece on Radio 4 Woman's Hour about the growing incidence of self-harm amongst younger people.
You can listen to the piece at this BBC website here.
"Feeling on the edge, helping you get through it", is a leaflet produced by the Royal College of Psychiatrists which provides information to people who are self-harming and their carers. It describes what happens to people who are provided specialist mental health support, and gives contact details for other agencies such as The Samaritans, Papyrus and The National Self-Harm Network. And many more too.
