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.
