Are You Or Anyone You know Self-harming?
Our Resources Have Been Successful In Helping Individuals To Overcome Self-harm.
Self-harm is when somebody intentionally damages or injures their body. It's usually a way of coping with or expressing overwhelming emotional distress.
Sometimes when people self-harm, they feel on some level that they intend to die. More than half of people who die by suicide have a history of self-harm.
The intention is more often to punish themselves, express their distress or relieve unbearable tension. Sometimes it's a mixture of all three.
Self-harm can also be a cry for help.
Below are the resources we feel have the best approach to tackle such issues.
