Struggling with Self-harm or Cutting?
Are you or a loved one struggling with self-harm or self-injury ⎯ hurting yourself on purpose? One common method is cutting yourself with a razor. Other methods involve inflicting burns, pulling out hair or picking at wounds to prevent healing. Hurting yourself—or thinking about hurting yourself—is a sign of emotional distress.
People often keep this behavior a secret, but the urge to self-harm is not uncommon, especially in adolescents and young adults. Many people are able to overcome this behavior with treatment. Whether you have recently started self-injurious behavior or have been doing it for awhile, there is an opportunity to improve health and eliminate these behaviors. Talking to a healthcare professional is the first step towards understanding this behavior and finding relief.
