Cutting is a potentially dangerous way to cope with difficult situations and emotions. In fact, it’s one of the most dangerous forms of self-harm. If left untreated, cutting can lead to infections, worse mental health, and even death.

If you feel like your cutting is turning into something even more harmful, or that you may take your own life; immediate support is available. Please call 800-273-8255 or text HOME to 741741.

If you are cutting yourself, you can learn other coping mechanisms that are better for your physical and emotional health. The first step is talking to a trained therapist who can help you understand your behaviors, their root causes, and how to feel better.

Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Benefits of Treatment for Cutting

Cutting treatment is tailored to the individual, given that the reasons behind self-harming behavior vary from person to person. Many find that their urge to cut diminishes greatly with therapy.

Therapy for cutting or self-harm can have the following benefits:

  • Becoming more aware of your mental state.
  • Learning healthier skills you can use to cope with stressors.
  • Improving your social skills and relationships.
  • Discovering and dispelling self-harm triggers.
  • Greater confidence in who you are and compassion for yourself.

Getting therapy for cutting from a licensed professional may be just what you need to improve your life. If you are still curious about how a therapist can provide treatment for cutting, read this personal story about self-harm, trauma, and the benefits of therapy.
