SelfInjury

We all cope with difficult thoughts, feelings or situations in different ways. Self-injury, also known as self-harm or self-abuse, means that someone hurts themselves on purpose but doesn’t intend to end their own life. When a person self-injures, this may be their way to cope with difficult or overwhelming thoughts or feelings.

Self-injury is not a mental illness, but it may be a sign that someone needs care and support. If you or someone you know is self-injuring, there is help.
