Our Media Databank

Help us learn more about self-harm and the internet with our media databank

Here at SHARE UK we want to learn more about the relationship between the internet and self-harm. The internet can offer valuable support and information. There are also dangers such as harmful information and bullying.

We want to learn more about what you find helpful and what you feel could be damaging.

To do this we have created the UKs first people managed media databank. this means that you can upload anything you view online in a simple pin-board format.


A databank built and maintained by real people instead of researchers has lots of advantages. Everything in this databank will be relevant to the real world material you actually view. It will be constantly updated by you in real time with new sites and resources. Of course anything you share will only be seen by our research team.

Using this information we can gain a real world picture of the kind of information that is out there. We can also learn more about the impact this material really has.

Contributing is simple. Just sign up here and then follow the steps below
