How to

Help People

who Self-harm

CandleSpark is a Milton Keynes community organisation that provides training around self-harm. We offer bespoke training programs individually tailored to your needs, target audience and time constraints. Please note that we do not run a help line or provide 1-to-1 support. Visit the resources page for service providors that do.


Founded by counsellor Ilse Leenders, CandleSpark has run self-harm support sessions funded by the MK Community Foundation and provided self-harm training for local organisations including Mind BLMK, Human Givens and the Police Community Service Officers.


CandleSpark is offering a free workshop, How to Help People who Self-harm, on 21 and 24 April 2018. This 90-minute workshop is suitable for professionals, carers, and family and friends of self-harmers and explores simple ways of providing support.
