Get help: Although it might be difficult to reach out to someone on this concern, finding a good psychiatrist or psychologist to consult with as soon as you can would be best. This person can help you better understand what internal causes might be going on with the self harm, and can collaborate with you on finding other ways to handle the feelings involved with the behaviors.
