    I think being around a self harming friend is

    affecting me. I only started thinking of cutting to take out emotions since she told me she did. I am worried for her and my other friend. Not sure what to do. I am worried she doesn't take self harming seriously

    Help for Parents Who Have Just Discovered Their

    Child Self-Harms. Whether burning or cutting, self-harm has the same end goal of producing pain. Pain is the body's signal that it is damaged. Pain also clouds the mind and blots out most else. Blocking obsessive / unpleasant thoughts is a minor benefit of self-harm. Makes...

    What caused the Self-Harm?

    Your kid has a problem and self-harm helps. It does. Get it out of your head that it doesn't. He or she wouldn't do it if it wasn't doing something they like. We just explained why they probably like it (even if they don't understand why) So what is eating at them? Probably...
