Self Harm: What It Is And How To Deal With It

If the person is reluctant to get help, you could say:

  • “Do you have someone trustworthy you can go to?”
  • “If it helps, you can talk to me about it.”

All these might sound disturbing but self-harm indicates serious underlying mental health issues that demands your immediate attention. There are lots of support services and treatment procedures available when you feel ready to seek help.

No two people have the same back story for harming oneself.

If you are someone trying to help out another person who is self-injurious, be compassionate, try understanding them, have patience and validate their pain.
