Self Injury Support

Self injury Support (formerly Bristol Crisis Service for Women) supports women in emotional distress. It particularly helps girls and women who harm themselves (often called self-injury). Both of their phone services are confidential and run by female volunteers, for anyone who identifies as a woman.

What they do:

- run TESS text and email support for girls and young women up to 24 who self-injure

- run the CASS Women's Self-Injury Helpline, which offers support and signposting

- produce information and publications about self-injury

- deliver talks and self-injury training courses to professionals

- support self-injury self-help groups

- maintain a UK-wide database of self-harm and self-injury support services and groups
