Beyond Bandages is a self-injury support group for adult men and women who cause self-inflicted pain and/or injuries to themselves (as a form of coping), who are seeking support or have overcome and looking for support, in a group environment.
1st & 3rd Thursdays @ 7:00pm
Our self-injury support group takes place on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month. Come out to be part of a supportive group where you can discuss the real struggles of overcoming self-inflicted violence. Regardless of where you are in your road to recovery, we are here to listen and support.
Each self-injury support group meeting has a specific topic and takes place in a relaxed environment.
*If you arrive after 7:10pm, you will need to wait to come in the meeting until the break, which is 7:55pm-8:05pm.
The support group was designed and created in 2005 by Launching Point founder, Vicki Duffy. She facilitates the group and over the years, she has asked group members assist at a meeting, which is great to see recovered group members be so involved.
Beyond Bandages is a self-injury support group that began on Friday, November 4, 2005 in Florham Park as "Breaking the Silence of Self-Injury" at the 2nd floor of Living Praise Church. It has continued as "Beyond Bandages" and currently takes place on the 1st and 3rd Thursday nights of every month. We supplement the group with activities that take place on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of every month for those that regularly attend meetings.
The self-injury support group meetings are closed, only open to those that currently harm, in process of overcoming, or have overcome and looking for support.
If you bring a guest, friend or family member, they are welcome to stay in the lobby.
The self-injury support group originally began in 2005 in Florham Park as "Breaking The Silence Of Self-Injury" and changed the name in 2009 to "Beyond Bandages". Launching Point moved to Rockaway in January, 2015. We we were at 21 Pine Street in Rockaway (for 3 1/2 years) until April 26, 2019; we then rented space at the Hampton Inn, Denville until August 1, 2019. We are happy to announce that hiatus was very short and we got a new location to call home! We moved to our new location on August 1, 2019 to Main Street in Boonton!
