GYWMind receives Santander Grant

The grant from Santander will enable us to give our Self Harm Safe Kits away free of charge* until further notice, to the young people in Great Yarmouth and Waveney who require them.

The aim of the kit is to reduce self-harm activity in young people by promoting safer alternatives to be able to cope in more positive ways.  The safe kit is a small tin providing safer alternative strategies and self-harm reduction (and delay) techniques that can be used on reflection, reducing the need to self-harm in the moment or on impulse.  It also gives young people a useful tool to express or convey the reasoning behind their self-harming or when they need to seek medical attention if they find it difficult to convey this verbally.   It is informative and easy to read, it is small enough to keep hidden on one’s person.

For more information please contact reception on 01493 842129 or email reception@gywmind.org.uk

*p+p charge applicable if not being collected from our office.
