SUPPORTING THOSE AFFECTED BY SELF-INJURY
We provide peer based support to anybody over 16 years of age and currently have 5 support groups. We are also piloting a carers support group in the Wigan borough.
If it seems a little daunting joining a new group, one of our volunteers would be more than happy to meet with you before the group meets to have a chat and help you to settle in. Please contact us if this is what you wish to do.
To provide a safe and supportive environment
for anybody affected by self-injury.
To raise awareness of self-injury.
To tackle stigma associated with self-injury.
There are always flowers for those who want to see them… Henri Matisse
Sometimes to see the rainbow you have to experience the rain…
Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying
‘I will try again tomorrow’…
Recovery from anything is usually one step forward, two steps back…
Be the change you want to see in the world… Gandhi
Though you may be
under a dark tree,
always look for the light
shining through the branches…
I had the blues cos I had no shoes,
‘Til I walked upon the street,
And met a man who had no feet…
Have a heart that never hardens,
a temper that never tires,
and a touch that never hurts…
You're happiest while you're making the greatest contribution…
Robert F. Kennedy
You may just be someone in the world but,
to someone else,
you may be the world…
No Secrets is a peer support group for anybody over 16 years of age who is affected directly or indirectly by self-injury. The group meets in a safe and secure environment, where people can explore their own behaviours, and share their feelings with people who have had similar experiences. We offer a range of activities to help members develop their own skills, realise their potential, and have some fun in the process.
