For some young people self-harm is a way of coping with distressing experiences (for example relating to family life, or problems at school such as bullying). In the longer term, it is possible for the young person to develop alternative ways of dealing with the underlying emotions related to their self-harm. Regular counselling/ therapy may be a helpful way for the young person to start to do this. The free Calm Harm App enables young people to start to manage impulsiveness and to explore underlying trigger factors.
