LifeSIGNS – Self-Injury Guidance & Network Support
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, we’re now in our second decade and it’s our continuing mission to guide people who hurt themselves towards new ways of coping, when they’re ready for the journey.

"we found that CBT-based psychological therapy may have led to a small-to-modest reduction in the number of patients repeating self-harm behaviours."
Self-injury awareness wristbands
We’ve sold wristbands for many years now; when we run out, people ask us every day when the new stock will be available.
We sell hundreds of wristbands just before Self-Injury Awareness Day on the 1st of March, and we sell wristbands all year long and send them worldwide.
Raising awareness about self-injury is incredibly important. Awareness leads to understanding and empathy, banishing judgment and fear, and reducing the number of people who feel alone and suffer in silence.
