We know the impact self-harm can have on people's lives.
That's why we offer multiple ways to support those who self-harm.
We run self-harm Recovery Workshops to educate and help manage ongoing risk with weekly group meetings.
We also offer drop-in clinics, no appointment required, just turn up and gain access to all of SCUFF's support.
SCUFF's Self-Harm Recovery Workshops provide essential tools and mental health techniques to those who self-harm.
