Welcome to - Supporting Self Injury Awareness
Welcome to RecoverYourLife: One of the biggest and best Self-Harm Support Communities on the internet. Although we are known for helping people suffering with Self Harm, we also welcome and support people with other issues such as Eating Disorders, Mental Health problems, those dealing with Abuse, and many more! We do not condone any pro-activity or encourage anyone to hurt themselves in any way, and there are a few rules to hold that in place.

We strongly believe in an open and non-judgemental atmosphere which we feel has helped so many people already. Whatever you feel you are struggling with, remember: You are not alone. Our members have proved many thousands of times that there is hope - RYL really can be the stepping stone to getting through your Self Harm.

On the site there is lots to explore! Articles on the Main Site, the Forums, Chat and Live Help, which is run by the Supporters, are the key places where you can find the support you need, any day at any time. We're open 24/7 all year round.

As well as the support side of the site, we also find that distraction and the feeling of community works just as well. We have regular community competitions, reviews on books and media, and a monthly eZine which is certainly a good read! We have various teams of staff on RYL who dedicate their time to give that little extra back and support our webmaster in the functioning of the site. These teams include Moderators, who moderate the fourms and chat, Supporters, who go out of their way to help others in need, First Aid Advisors, who offer advice on wound care and more, members of the RYL eZine, and the Community Team, who represent the community in the changes and improvements that keep RYL the best it can be! So welcome, and please take a look around!
