Unfortunately there are times when we don’t feel able to talk to anyone about what is bothering us, leaving us feeling helpless and hopeless.
Sometimes harming ourselves appears to be the only way of coping with whatever is going on in our lives.
If you have self-harmed or are considering doing so, it is important to know that there are people who can help you work through your problems and will not judge you.
Talk to someone about how you are feeling, maybe a friend, family member, partner, work colleague, youth worker or your doctor.
If you would prefer to talk to someone anonymously there are services that can help. You shouldn’t feel alone.
