Self-Injurious Behavior

Hurting yourself—or thinking about hurting yourself—is a sign of emotional distress. These uncomfortable emotions may grow more intense if a person continues to use self-harm as a coping mechanism. Learning other ways to tolerate the mental pain will make you stronger in the long term. Self-harm also causes feelings of shame. The scars caused by frequent cutting or burning can be permanent.

If you love someone who is self-harming you may not understand it and you can take it personally.  What people need is support and a safe place to process and explore this behavior.  Please watch the video below if you want to learn more and if you feel you need more resources do not hesitate to reach out to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
