Make an emergency GP appointment.

Go to your nearest A&E department.

Call NHS 111 or 999

Call Samaritans on 116 123

Text “Shout” to 85258

Calm Harm provides some immediate techniques to help break the cycle of self-harm behaviours and explore underlying trigger factors, build a ‘safety net’ of helpful thoughts, behaviours, and access to supportive people, provide opportunity to journal and self-reflect.
