The project provides personalised Counselling & Creative Therapeutic Support to children, young people and their families affected by self-harm in Sandwell and aims to promote recovery and encourage safe alternative methods for coping.
Breaking Silence is primarily a self-referral service, although we take referrals from other organisations and agencies where the young person has given their consent to be referred.
The project offers self-harm awareness workshops for parents, carers and professionals. These workshops help to improve parents, carers, professionals understanding and knowledge of self-harm and provides them with positive ways to help support their children and young people.
