How do I get help for self-mutilation?

Help for Self-injury. Please do consult a psychiatrist or psychotherapist -- it's essential to connect with someone you can work with over time. Oftentimes people who self-mutilate have histories of traumatic experiences that need to be dealt with. Doing so requires ongoing trust, as does developing less harmful ways of handling painful emotions. I hope you have a helpful friend or family member in your life too.
