Help for self harm

Help for self harm

It is said that 10% of young people self harm and this is done for several reasons and ion many ways. Self-harm is when somebody intentionally damages or injures their body.

Remember, self-harm isn’t a suicide attempt or a cry for attention. However, it can be a way for some people to cope with overwhelming and distressing thoughts or feelings.  Self-harm should be taken seriously, whatever the reason behind it.

It is possible to live without self-harm. It is important to know that you won’t always feel the way you do now.

With the right help and support most people who self-harm can and do fully recover.

But the intention is more often to punish themselves, express their distress, or relieve unbearable tension. Sometimes it’s a mixture of all three.
