Are you or someone you know self-harming? Reach out for support from a helpline in Malta

Self-harm is when you purposely hurt yourself as a way to cope with difficult emotions. Self-harm may bring you relief from intense emotional pain, but the relief is often short-lived. If you struggle with the following, there are 3 helplines available in Malta that can offer you support:

  • Feeling like you're addicted to pain or hurting yourself
  • Feeling the need to escape or numb your feelings
  • Not wanting to die, but still feeling like you need the pain
  • Taking part in high-risk activities, disregarding safety
  • Searching for ways to self-harm
  • Feeling like your emotions are too difficult or overwhelming to deal with
  • Feeling like your head is spinning with thoughts and there's no other option to make it stop
  • Feeling like you're worthless

It’s normal to look for ways to relieve strong, negative emotions. Although it’s not talked about much, self-harm is a common strategy people use to deal with emotional turmoil. It may not seem like it, but there are other, healthy ways to deal with the pain you're experiencing.

You may struggle to talk to people about your feelings, but having the right person to talk to can make all the difference. Dedicated volunteers in Malta will listen to you without any judgement. Whether you just want to be heard, or you want to explore other coping tools, you can find the support you need.

If you feel like you might need support with self harm, try reaching out to a hotline in Malta. It's free and confidential.
