Service Description

For many young people, self-harm can feel like a way to cope with difficult feelings or to release tension. The physical pain of hurting themselves can feel like a distraction from the emotional pain they're struggling with. Some difficult experiences or emotions can make self-harm more likely in children: • experiencing depression, anxiety or eating problems • having low self-esteem or feeling like they’re not good enough • being bullied or feeling alone • experiencing emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, or neglect • grieving or having problems with family relationships • feeling angry, numb or like they don't have control over their lives. It can be hard to recognize the signs of self-harm in children and teenagers, but it’s important to trust your instincts if you’re worried something’s wrong. Signs to look out for can include: • covering up, for example by wearing long sleeves a lot of the time, especially in summer • unexplained bruises, cuts, burns or bite-marks on their body • blood stains on clothing, or finding tissues with blood in their room • becoming withdrawn and spending a lot of time alone in their room • avoiding friends and family and being at home • feeling down, low self-esteem or blaming themselves for things • outbursts of anger, or risky behavior like drinking or taking drugs.
