Let's Change The Focus ...Self-Harm To Recovery


  Self -harm is a destructive coping strategy  used to numb overwhelming emotions  and life experiences such as depression, anxiety, fear and trauma. Our recovery coaches help you to discover healthier ways  to cope. We are here to listen and will not judge you. Never lose hope. You are stronger then you realize. 



80% of self-injures begin harming in  their teens.

Self-injury is used as a coping mechanism to deal with intense anger, emotional pain and or mental, physical or sexual abuse. 

Self-injury happens in all  socio-economic backgrounds.

Inflicting cuts with  sharp objects to the skin until it bleeds.


Medical attention may be needed on wounds that are deep or have gotten infected.



Self-harm is a failed suicide attempt.

People who self -harm are seeking attention.

Those who intentionally cut are crazy and should be locked up.

Once a "cutter" always a "cutter."

Cutting is not addictive and I can stop without any help from anyone.

Only teen girls self-harm.
