This article is written from the point of view of a service user who is involved in training staff about working with people who self-injure in the secure learning disability service where he lives.• I am a service user living in a secure unit who talks to staff in training about self-injury.• I do an hour each month answering questions and I get paid for it.• I enjoy training the staff and it has made me more confident.• I get some good feedback about my work from the staff.• I wanted to tell other people about this experience.• This report is made of parts of a recorded interview that I did with a member of staff and meetings with her to write this into an article.
