Launching Point is a mission of love; simply put, we are committed to helping people overcome self-inflicted violence through support groups, outreach, and volunteering. While we don’t provide mental health services, we do provide a safe environment where every person will have a sense of belonging, find hope, and the freedom to walk out their “recovery” among others who have faced similar challenges.
Launching Point believes that every person matters, has hope, a future and that every person is part of the puzzle. Our purpose is to devote our time and efforts to providing awareness, support and relevant resources to those adults who struggle with self-injury, as well as assist friends and loved ones cope.
Our crew comprises of an amazing team of volunteers who are committed to helping others overcome self-injury and educate the community. We take our convictions and turn them into action.

Are you interested in having a seminar or conference on self-injury? Are you considering a workshop or having a presentation on self-injury?
For the first time since 2005, we were without a location; on April 26, 2019 we moved out of the location (due to lack of finances) in Rockaway that we've called home for 3 1/2 years.
For 3 months our self-injury support group meetings took place on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month temporarily at the Hampton Inn on 350 Morris Avenue, Denville, NJ. *On August 1, 2019 we moved to a 3 room suite in Boonton, this was made possible through a generous donor who is paying our rent for the next 3 years!
If you would like to donate to our cause, and help toward ongoing expenses, please know that your contributions will enable us to do great things. Your generous donation will fund our mission of hope and healing in our community and beyond.
