See your FamilyDoc: I'm sorry to hear that you're so severely depressed that you've thought of hurting yourself. Don't endure this pain alone. Tell your parents/guardian. See your FamilyDoc/GP and/or Psychiatrist. Your emotional pain can also cause physical pain such as a headache but I can't tell exactly why your head hurts. So it's best that you see local doc. Don't keep your feelings in secret. Ask him/her to help

Go to ER: You need to get help right away for suicidal thoughts and self-harm. Tell your parents or a trusted friend and go to the nearest ER for an evaluation. Headaches probably from banging your head against the wall - but must be examined by doctor for proper diagnosis. Depression can be treated! See: https://secure02.kidshealth.org/teen/your_mind/mental_health/depression.html Be safe and please get help without delay. I hope this helps.

Need to see a doc: Yes as you know hitting your head against the wall can be dangerous. You should be checked over not only physically but emotionally also. Treatment Works!!! You should immediately see a mental health professional. YOu should also tell your parents and close friends so you can get the support and help that you deserve to have. You can always call 911 or a suicide hotline for immediate help.
