Providing support

If someone you know is self-injuring:

• Ask how they are feeling 
• Do not judge – let them know you care
• Educate yourself about self-injury – understanding self-injury, can help you, provide support  
• Do not promise confidentiality – tell a trusted adult or a professional counselor 
• Do not focus on the behaviour itself – self-injury usually means, that someone is struggling, and could use some support 
• Encourage them to seek professional help.
