Battle Scars is a currently unregistered charity based in South Devon, that supports those who are living with self harm. We have the amazing quality of becoming a self harmers friend who can help them through their struggles.
Everyone here at Battle Scars have suffered with self harm so we have an idea of what a sufferer is going through, we also provide support and counselling to help people to recover from self harm, as well as providing support to friends and family to help others to recover from self harm however they might do so.
We are also doing training in schools around the UK helping teachers, school councillors and parents better understand what the children are going through and to help them at an earlier age. We also do a presentation with the unique "ask a self harmer" portion of the presentation where we have whomever is at the talk a chance to ask us questions they never thought they would get the answers too.
We are also currently trying to get together the funding to have support groups around our local area to help with self harm along with support for families to better understand.
