Do you self-harm or know anyone who does? OTR’s hARMED group workshop is for anyone aged 11-15 struggling with self-harm or thoughts of self-harm.
Self-harm can have a number of causes, like a difficult situation at home, school or work. In this workshop, we look at how a stressful world can lead us to cope in certain ways. Then, we begin to look at other, more healthy ways we can manage life stresses. The workshop also offers a space for you to share with your peers, but you don’t have to talk if you don’t want to.
You’ll learn facts and myths about self-harm, how to keep safe, the science of how the mind and body works, how to deal with diﬃcult emotions, and how to reduce self-harm by learning new ways to manage.
Each workshop meets once a week for six weeks and has about eight young people around the same age in attendance. Workshops run regularly every few months.
Mon 16th Sep – Mon 21st October 2019
at OTR, St Michael’s Hill
You can only sign up to one OTR group at a time (our groups are: Mind Aid, hARMED and Shameless) – this is because they run at the same time!
