Get support for self-harm from a hotline in Malaysia

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 5 helplines available in Malaysia that can offer you support:

  • Feeling temporary relief after hurting yourself, but the emotional pain coming back stronger
  • Looking for a way to escape the emotional pain
  • Imagining hurting yourself
  • Coming up with excuses and ways to explain self-inflicted injuries
  • A desire to punish or hurt yourself
  • Feeling like you need to hide injuries from those who care about you
  • Feeling like you need an outlet to channel your painful emotions
  • Not wanting to die, but still feeling like you need the pain

Since self-harm provides immediate, in-the-moment relief from painful emotions, it’s easy to become reliant on it as your go-to coping mechanism. Stopping may seem impossible and you may be ashamed to even talk about it. However, self-harm is more common than you think. Many people struggle to manage intense emotions.

Talking about how you feel can be difficult,, especially if you tend to bottle things up. But talking can offer you a healthy alternative for releasing negative emotions. Helpline counselors in Malaysia want to listen to you and support you. They can help you find ways to feel better without hurting yourself.

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