Radio Interview Request – Derbyshire Area

As you may already know there is a new self harm self help group in Chesterfield. As part of the promotion of the group from the 1st of Febuary there will be a spotlight on self harm on Peak FM.    We need people who have or are currently self harming to come on to Peak FM  to do  pre recorded interview about their experience of self harm eg how it’s affected them, why they started.  From personal experience, it’s a daunting prospect but people can talk about it  as much or as little as they  are  comfortable with.   If you would like to take part please phone the Self Harm Self Help number which is 07971510702
Thanks
