Our researchA Search for Innovative Ways to Deal with Self-harm

In collaboration with mental health and wellbeing charity Health in Mind, this six-month project aims to identify ways in which young people who self-harm, who are often reluctant to seek support, could access technology-enabled care, advice and access to services to complement face-to-face support. It will also investigate the impact of self-harm on families.

The project will take a co-production approach, involving young people, families, mental health practitioners and digital innovators in identifying technological and digital solutions for supporting young people and families.

The project has received £60k of funding from the European Social Fund and further funding to test the ideas and innovations emerging will be sought.
