We can’t be there in person to help and support you in a moment of crisis, but there are other options available to you if you can’t turn to someone you trust. By giving us your postcode (or one nearby to where you are right now) we can let you know about services in your area. Remember: this moment will pass; you won’t always feel the way you do right now.
I've self-harmed by cutting for a number of years but recently I've started punching, hitting and slapping my face and head, mostly my head. I find it worrying but still can't stop. I do it about twice a week but it can be up to every day depending on how stressful my week is. What sort of risks am I posing by doing this? I'm worried I'll cause irreversible damage.
