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.

Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • Learning healthier skills you can use to cope with stressors.
  • Improving your social skills and relationships.
