Self harm?

***possible trigger warning***

so I've recently had a bit of a relapse and I think my mental health has taken a definite decline... does anyone have any tips to get over this kind of thing? to try and stop? xx

Re: Self harm?

Hey @Romanoff, thanks for your post, and I'm sorry that you are not feeling the best right now.


Are you currently seeing a professional about these issues? I definitely believe one-on-one support would be a very good way of getting tailored help for self-harm.


Please don't beat yourself up - having a relapse is a normal part of recovery.

hi @Romanoff and welcome im gald youve reached out to us here

i second what the others have said. i think getting some professional mh support by speaking to your gp, school/uni counsellor, family or trusted teacher would be a really good start.

Re: Self harm?

Well i find that to stop me from self harm is i wear a elastic rubberband on my wrist and everytime i get the urge to self harm i just flick the rubber band a few times. Even if that doesnt work wait fifteen minutes when u have and urge to self harm then wait another fifteen minutes and the urge should past. Just distractions are great.
