Everyone has a story to tell, and we want to share ours with you:
After years of overcoming self-harm, our founder launched a self-help website in 2001 called EndAllThePain for that led her to creating a self-injury (self-harm) Support group in November 2005. A year later, we were officially incorporating as Launching Point, a self-injury support & resource center. Over the years we have helped thousands of people overcome self-harm, spoken at schools, churches, and conferences. We have evolved over the years and are now I quit being loved ones, schools, and first responders with the knowledge to help people over come self-harm. We bring our message of hope everywhere we go and have transformed to Love More Judge Less, a non-profit organization doing life-changing things in our community and beyond.
We are a safe space where you will be accepted. We offer a complementary café where you can just be yourself. We also offer workshops, seminars, a talk show, hangout nights, and an inspiring store loaded with hundreds of encouraging sayings on small products, which are all created out of our personal experiences.
We are about everyone…the misfits, the odd, the perfectly imperfect people; we are all about you. We are a mission of love doing our best to live a life of loving more and judging less.
We all love & recovery in action.
Love More. Judge Less.

We realize that some people may need help that is "beyond our expertise" and when that happens, we will suggest you seek a professional; this is to keep each member of our groups and organization safe and focused on support; we are not counselors nor do we have the expertise to help "everyone with everything" and since each individual has a history, there are many "moving parts", to each situation, therefore believe it's best to suggest the person consult a professional when the concern is beyond the support we offer. Additionally, we refrain from discussions that are beyond our abilities, however, we will direct people to counseling, a therapist (or crisis care when needed) as this keeps everyone on the right path for success. ❤️
