Abstract: Linda Bromley and Helen Whittington journeyed together along a long road to Linda’s recovery from self injury while dealing with related issues from her past, and the impact of mental illness. This paper presents insights that Linda and Helen have gained, including understandings of the power of self injury in someone’s life, strategies and approaches that Linda found helpful, and the importance of building connections that lead to active collaboration between mental health services, the community sector and informal networks.
