WHAT is self-harm?

In its broad sense, self-harm is any act carried out which cases harm to the "self".

Self-harm is any behavior that results in the physical harm, causing injuries or pain to your own body. It is not linked with suicidal intent

Self-harm is a way of dealing with feelings and emotional distress and is a way of coping with issues/ events that the individual finds difficult to express in any other way.

This behavior is usually hidden away.



You are not alone.

There is always hope!




Self-harm is often used as a coping strategy so stopping or reducing is not a short-term solution. Therefore new coping strategies need to be learned to provide individuals with healthier ways ahead!
