Teens, Cutting, and Self-Injury
IMPORTANT: Seek Help Immediately for Self-Injury
If you have urges to self-injure, or have already done so, confide in someone who can help you find a better way to cope with bad feelings. That might be a parent, an older sibling, a minister, a rabbi, a guidance counselor, health care practitioner, psychologist, social worker, or another trusted grown-up.
Do the same if you know of someone who inflicts physical harm on his or her body. Self-injury deserves immediate attention.
