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.)
