Battle Scars run survivor-led support groups in Leeds, to support anyone who self-harms, their families, friends and carers, professionals, or anyone who is trying to understand self-harm.
Battle Scars’ definition of self-harming includes a wide range of physical and psychological ways to harm yourself. This includes eating disorders, overdosing, obsessive negative thinking, physically damaging your body and neglect. Dates and times of their groups vary. They run separate groups for people who self-harm and also for parents and carers. There’s also a drop in session group for 16 to 25 year olds, a Do Something Different creative and peer support group and a Facebook support group for all ages.
