Episode 4 – Self-harm

The UK has the highest self-harm rate of any country in Europe, and it remains an issue people struggle to handle, talk about, and understand.

In this episode we discuss personal experiences of self-harm and coping techniques, the latest research in the field and misunderstanding and stigma can stop people who self-harm from seeking help.

We’re joined by Swansea University’s Professor Ann John, whose main research interest is self-harm, suicide and public health. Ann also chairs the National Advisory Group to Welsh Government on Suicide an Self harm prevention.

Our second guest is Si, co-founder of Heads Above the Waves, a not-for-profit organisation that works with young people to promote positive, creative ways of dealing with bad days.
