The Samaritans have launched a self-harm and stigma public survey to further understand the extent, impact, and nuances of internal and external stigma in relation to self-harm.

Through this research they aim to develop potential responses to self-harm related stigma across the island of Ireland and ensure Samaritans can offer the right supports for those who require support when they are in need.

A Samaritans spokesperson said: “We are looking for the perspectives from everyone across the island of Ireland and Northern Ireland, from those with lived experience, to those who work in mental health, to those who feel they know very little about self-harm.

“The more viewpoints we can gather the better our chance is of developing recommendations inclusive of all.

“The survey should take no more than 10 minutes and is anonymous and confidential. It is open to everyone 18 and over who lives in Ireland or Northern Ireland, and we would encourage you to both partake in and share this survey as widely as possible.

“The survey has been extended to Friday 7th October.”
