Strive is a prison-based programme designed for women who are at risk of, or are, self-harming, to reduce risk of self-harm or self-inflicted death. The programme provides participants with opportunities to discover alternative and safer coping strategies to self-harm, and the resources needed to develop greater emotional resilience.
