Self-harm means hurting yourself on purpose. Some people self-harm as a way to release painful emotions, such as low self-worth, poor body image, depression, or anxiety.

Self-harm is a coping mechanism that has both physical and emotional consequences, from infection to shame to putting yourself at risk for more severe actions such as suicide. (If you feel like you may take your own life; immediate support is available. Please call 800-273-8255 or text HOME to 741741.)

If you self-harm, help is available to 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.
