Welcome to WISHS, and thanks for landing on our page.
Formerly 'No Secrets Wigan', we have a new name and a new look. WISHS; Wigan Integrated Self Harm Service, will continue the same aim; to help and support those affected by self harm.
We have a group for those over 16 years, and a group for those under 17 years. There is a year overlap in age to allow younger members time to adjust to the over 16's group.
We also provide training/education sessions to anybody wanting to improve their knowledge and skills when caring for/or working with people affected by self-harm.
WISHS Update February 2018
It is with deepest regret that after over 7 years supporting those affected by self harm, we are unable to continue running as an organisation. Lack of funding and increased running costs have taken their toll and, despite keeping the organisation going for as long as we possibly could, we are now without any other option.
We would like to thank all those who have supported us over the years as both as No Secrets and also WISHS and are so grateful for all those we have met along the way especially our amazing and inspirational group members. We feel so lucky to have been able to provide support to those affected by self harm and also deliver training to so many professionals during our time.
It it is a sad time for us and we never imagined this day would come however we can look back on our little organisation with pride for what we and all our past volunteers and founder have been part of.
