Are you or someone you know self-harming? Reach out for support from a helpline in Delaware, United States

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 Delaware, United States that can offer you support:

  • Having sudden impulses to hurt yourself
  • Not wanting to die, but still feeling like you need the pain
  • Avoiding people you care about so they don't find out
  • A desire to punish or hurt yourself
  • Not looking after your physical health (e.g. not eating, not taking care of wounds or injuries)
  • Feeling like self-harm is the only thing keeping you going
  • Burning yourself with something hot
  • Imagining hurting yourself

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.
