Is it teething time for your little one?

 

Self harm is not something that is talked about enough and is surrounded by a number of common myths and misconceptions, something that SpunOut, a youth information website, wants to change. 

 

The #KnowSelfHarm campaign challenges the common myths and misconceptions out there so people can better understand self harm. It also covers ways for people to manage their self harm, including healthier ways of coping, and signposts how and where people can get help.

 


According to the charity, self harm is when someone deliberately hurts, cuts or injures themselves; for some it is a way of coping with difficult or overwhelming feelings but can often leave the person feeling worse and locked into a cycle of self harming.

 

Recognising just how important it is to look after our mental health and that a lack of understanding and misinformation is adding to the problem, SpunOut wants people to understand what self harm is in order to help those struggling through it.
