However, it’s important to get help when you’re ready because self-harm carries risks. There are 1 hotlines in Puerto Rico that can help. Reach out if you experience the following:

  • Feeling reckless, not caring whether you get hurt
  • Imagining hurting yourself
  • Feeling like you need an outlet to channel your painful emotions
  • Feeling the need to escape or numb your feelings
  • Having sudden impulses to hurt yourself
  • Feeling temporary relief after hurting yourself, but the emotional pain coming back stronger
