We are a charity based in Devon and Cornwall but have an online system that goes all over the uk, we are here to help people who are suffering with self harm, families and teachers of self harmers. We are currently arranging going around the uk in 2017 doing talks in schools helping teachers understand self harm better and helping students cope with it better.
We at battle scars are all ex self harmers and have struggled with the addiction so we understand what it's like to live with and can talk to you from a real perspective. We need money to get our leaflets,travel and would like to register our charity which costs £5,000.
