The 'Our Encounters with - ' series collect together unnmediated, unsanitised narratives by service-users, past service-users and carers.

These stories of direct experience will be of great benefit to those interested in narrative enquiry, and to those studying and practising in the field of mental health.

This collection brings together a range of voices on the theme of self-harm - from those who have experienced self-harm directly, alongside the friends, family and staff who live and work with self-harm.

Too often, our understanding of the unique and complex experiences of people who self-harm is limited to concepts of mental illness, disorder and disease.

Yet these stories demonstrate the strength, survival and recovery of people with rich and diverse lives.

Inspiring, hopeful and at times challenging to read, the contributors who have so generously shared their experiences in this book will promote understanding and compassion, improve attitudes and care, and offer hope to those who are personally encountering self-harm.In this respect, this book is of immense value to all those working with self-harm across a spectrum of services and roles, and to those living with self-harm.
