Where can you seek help for self-injury?

ANSWER

If you have urges to self-injure, or have already done so, confide in someone who can help you find a better way to handle bad feelings. That might be a parent, an older sibling, a minister, a rabbi, a guidance counselor, doctor, psychologist, social worker, or another trusted adult.

Do the same if you know of someone who inflicts physical harm on his or her body. Self-injury deserves immediate attention.
