Self-harm Research UK

Even though self-harm is common very often people don’t seek any help. As many as half of young people are thought to deal with self-harm alone. Here at SHARE UK we want this to change. We need to learn more so that we can improve things like the support available in hospitals or in schools.

For this we need your help. If we know more about what kind of things would help people in the real world we can come up with new ideas and better support.

Everything you tell us is completely anonymous and confidential.

Once you have signed up you can answer some questions about yourself, fill out questionnaires, add to our media databank or sign up for our research register.

Everything is optional and you can tell us as much or as little as you like.


We are looking for:

Participants who:

  • Are aged 16 or over
  • Are living in the UK
  • Have harmed themselves in any way at some time in their life. This could be self-injury or poisoning.


  • Online/home-based
