How to Deal with Heavy Self-Harm
Now that you have identified a problem, your next step should be consulting a mental health professional.
Mental health professionals are trained to help people who are engaging in self-harm. You can rely on them for support, advice and guidance. They can teach you better ways to deal with the strong emotions that drive you to want to self-harm. Gaining this knowledge and these skills could keep you out of the hospital and help you to remain employed.
You’re lucky to have a good support system. The only thing missing is the professional guidance of a therapist. You would feel a great deal of relief if self-harm were to no longer be a part of your life. That is possible with counseling. Please consider it. Take care.
