I just wanted to let you know about a project at Bristol Crisis Service for Women.
We are running a consultation about setting up a UK WIDE helpline for women and girls affected by self injury.
We would like to get as many views as possible from as wide a range of backgrounds as possible and have set up a survey here:
The Crisis Service for Women has been funded to re-establish a national helpline for women who are affected by self injury and self harm. Although we have run a service like this before we want to take some time to think about the best way to run this service and would really welcome your views.
If you are able to circulate this information to relevant contacts and let people who might be interested know about the survey we would be very grateful.
We are especially interested in the views of women of any age who might use such a service, but we are also interested in the views of people who support women who use self harm or self injury.
We include in this definition ANYONE who identifies as a women regardless of biology. We are also aware that for some women responding to a written survey in English may not be possible and we would be very keen to work with you to make sure any woman can respond in a way that suits her.
The survey is confidential and information you provide for will only be used to support the set up and running of the helpline and any personal details will not be shared with any other organisations.
Please feel free to pass on this survey link to anyone you think might be interested. Please keep yourself as safe as possible when filling in this survey and take breaks if you need to.
If you would like to look for support in relation to self harm/self injury we have a list of resources – local and national – on our website:
