Self Harm

Self Harm


Self harm in teens happens when an individual intentionally injures or damages their body as a means of coping or expressing great emotional distress. Oftentimes, the intention of self harm is as a punishment, or a way to relieve some sort of unbearable tension.

Self harm is most commonly associated with the intentional cutting, puncturing or carving of the skin, but can also include burning, ripping or pulling hair or skin, and self-bruising. Self harm is oftentimes a cry for help or utilizes as a means to feel in control of one’s mind and body.
