Self harm support group
Girls Xpress! is an award winning peer support group for girls and female to male transgender young people who self harm and who are between the ages 13-18.
“We are a self-help, peer support and counselling group who also campaign to improve awareness of and services to support young women who self harm. We are young women aged 13 -19 and are a mixture of girls in school, in care, and excluded. Many of us have been referred by agencies or schools; some are self-referred. Everything we do is in total confidence. We believe that through our activities and befriending support we are happier. We also provide text and msn support, and a crisis programme.” – The Girls Xpress! Group
Girls Xpress! meets every week for a mix of peer support and help with managing self harming and other things going on. Everyone stays in touch during the week and you will have text and online support when you most need it. If you feel alone, like you don’t fit in and no one understands then be brave enough to give group a try, You will never regret it!
“WISH and Girls Xpress have helped me so much over the last couple of years, and even now when I’m away from the group they keep me a part of something that has really become a big part of my life. All of the employees and girls alike keep a very welcoming environment for everybody. It’s a place to go and not be judged but be helped. WISH gave me somewhere to go when I was at my lowest point, and something to be proud of now that I am at my highest. It is somewhere I will always call home, and a place where hopes and dreams are made.” – Sian
