Why Do People Self-Injure?

People self-injure to:

  • Deal with uncomfortable or unwanted feelings;
  • Cope with grief, loss, violence or chronic illness;
  • Punish themselves or to express self-hatred or self-anger, or feelings of failure;
  • Cope with feelings of emptiness or numbness.
It’s important to remember that those who self-harm do not intend to end their lives, but it may be a sign that they need help. If you are worried about a friend, here’s what you can do.
