Self Harm – parent help in Cambridgeshire

Over the last two years, Pinpoint has helped parents whose children and young people have been self-harming.  Our monthly support group is no longer running  but we are working with other charities and county partners to develop a co-ordinated approach to supporting families affected by self harm.

In the meantime, we have resources to share, including some useful tips and strategies.  You can also contact Eve Redgrave – email or call the Pinpoint office on 01480 877333.
