New app launched to help people who self-harm

A new app has been launched that aims to give discreet help and advice to children and young people who self-harm.

The ‘Recovery from Self-Harm’ app was developed by charity Broadway Lodge after it was noted that children and teenagers are reluctant to pick up leaflets or actively seek help or advice from doctors and charities for fear of embarrassment or being overlooked as attention seeking.

Children and young people can access websites, online support groups and find contacts and videos of professionals giving advice. There is also a quiz about the misconceptions and facts of self-harm.

The app is available for free from the App store and can be found by searching for “Recovery from self-harm”.
