Self-harm helplines are available in Kentucky, United States

Self-harm may offer you relief from painful emotions in the moment, but it can leave you feeling worse afterward. It cannot solve your problems or remove the source of your pain. If you struggle with the following, you can get help from one of 6 in Kentucky, United States:

  • Feeling like you need an outlet to channel your painful emotions
  • Searching for ways to self-harm
  • Not wanting to die, but still feeling like you need the pain
  • Feeling like self-harm is the only thing keeping you going
  • Avoiding people you care about so they don't find out
  • Feeling like your emotions are too difficult or overwhelming to deal with
  • Not looking after your physical health (e.g. not eating, not taking care of wounds or injuries)
  • Feeling like normal ways of coping don't work for you – the pain is a last resort

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.

Dedicated volunteers in Kentucky, United States will listen to you without any judgement.
