It depends: It depends on the teacher -- but most would realize you're suffering, and would want to help you get the help you need. S/he would probably talk with you about your need to harm yourself, and make sure you have support from your parents. S/he may suggest speaking with your school counselor and/or your physician, as well as a psychologist or psychiatrist.
