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.

Help yourself right now; read about self-injury; download our fact sheets; support a friend; ask us a question about self-injury; learn how to get help; join us on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Read more about us and our mission.

We need volunteers, working from home, to run our organisation and social channels. We especially need a Diversity Manager and a Trustee.
