What Has Helped You To Stop Self-Harming?

    Living with self-harm can be draining. Recovery takes time, patience, and a lot of self-care. What are some of the things that have worked for you?

    If you self-harm, or have self-harmed in the past, you are definitely not alone.

    The urge to self-harm doesn't just go away overnight.

    If you have recovered – or are in the process of recovering – from self-harm, you may have found that seeing a therapist was incredibly helpful.

    Or perhaps you got a tattoo to remind yourself how strong you really are.

    Have you found that confiding in someone you trust helps?

    Maybe you've got a journal to track your thoughts, fears, dreams, and potential triggers?
