TW Resources for Managing Self-Harm

Hi everyone 👋


We wanted to check-in and have a chat about self-harm. We thought we'd share some helpful resources and support options for anyone who might be doing it tough and coping with self-harm at the moment. 


There are many reasons people might engage in self-harming behaviours. Self-harm can be a way of trying to relieve, control, or express tough feelings, thoughts or memories. For some, self-harm can be a way to get through feelings of pain or loneliness, or it might be used as a form of punishment when dealing with feelings of guilt or shame. 


Some find that the physical pain of self-harm helps them to temporarily relieve emotional pain. In this way, self-harm can be a coping strategy that someone uses to help them continue to live. However, it is important to be aware that self-harm can be dangerous, and can sometimes lead to serious physical and mental health consequences. If you are ever feeling unsafe or need urgent help, please call 000.


It can be difficult to know what to do and how to cope, but know that help is available. There are many things you can do to help manage self-harm, ranging from seeking professional support to practising self-help techniques. See resources below:




Feelings of shame might be holding you back from reaching out for support. Or perhaps you haven’t found an alternative way of coping, or support service that works for you yet - different approaches work for different people. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and remember that there is always someone out there who cares about your well-being. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and to tell someone how you’re feeling. No matter how tough things are, you never have to face it alone.




Remember that the Online Community is a safe space to chat about what you're going through. We always here for you 💛 We ask that you just bear in mind our community guidelines around chatting about self-harm when posting about your experience, thank you 😊
