harmLESS is a resource for those who have contact with young people who are self-harming.

The content has been adapted with thanks for Gloucestershire, because our CAMHS service and referral processes is different from other areas. If you are working with a young person from outside Gloucestershire, please use the orginal harmLESS website www.harmLESS.nhs.uk
