About the Author

Self harm is a difficult subject to understand, especially for people who have never experienced it personally. So when Kerris mum Maureen found out her daughter was using self-harm to cope with her difficult emotions, she was at a loss and did not know what to do to help her. They struggled through for months, not knowing what to do for the best. Professionals could not even fully explain why Kerri was harming herself. Nobody understood what they were going through. Eventually, mother and daughter set up a peer support group in 2007, hoping to meet others in similar situations, and No Secrets was born. Kerris self harm has since improved, and she finally understands more about it through speaking to others who use the same coping mechanism.
