About
The WISH Centre (WISH) is a charity supporting young people into recovery from self harm, violence, abuse and neglect. We do this through  providing a safe and confidential  place with problem focused  counselling at our Centre and in schools; text and online support; self harm peer support programmes; advice and help for keeping safe; campaigning and innovative & creative workshops  for teenagers, and much more.  WISH is run by psychotherapists and young people in recovery from self harm who are ex-service users. Every year 90% young people coming to WISH stop self harming and improve their emotional well being and personal safety.
