Help shape Scottish Government’s new Self-Harm Strategy

Join us at one of our recovery conversation cafés to explore how we can make services and support better for people affected by self-harm.

Your experiences matter

Scottish Recovery Network are holding a series of recovery conversation cafés to help develop the Scottish Government’s new Self-Harm Strategy. We are looking for people who are willing to share their experiences of self-harm support. We would also like to hear from people, services and organisations that provide support. Together, we will explore:

  • What enables people to live well?
  • What would make support and services better?
  • How can sharing your experiences with others in similar circumstances help?

The feedback from these events will be shared with the Scottish Government to help them shape the strategy and develop better services in the future.

Book your place

Share your invaluable insights and experiences with us in person or online over a cuppa and some lunch. Booking opens via our eventbrite channel on Tuesday 20 December 2022.

National online café

We will be using the video conferencing tool Zoom for this event. Your online security and wellbeing are our utmost priority. We will send out a secure Zoom link and welcome pack ahead of the event.

If you would rather call into this event on your phone (audio access ) we can accommodate this – you can request this on the registration form.

In person cafés

Lunch provided from 12:30.

Scottish Recovery Network’s staff team will host the cafés with the support of people with lived experience. We have deliberately low numbers to allow more time to explore your opinions and ideas. Places are given on a first come, first serve basis. All the sessions are the same. Please only book for one session.
