On Self-Harm

We recognise that having a bad or unwanted sexual experience can be very traumatising and difficult to recover from. Some people turn to self-harm to help them cope with the feelings they are overwhelmed by. If this is you, you may find these resources useful in your journey of recovery from self-harm.

Alumina Live

Alumina Live is an online course designed for young males or females between the ages of 14-18 who turn to self-harm as a way of coping and would like to find other ways of dealing with the ups and downs of life. No matter if you’ve been struggling with self-harm for years or just a few days, Alumina could be just what you need to help you take the next step.
