Sirius Project – Support in an emotional crisis – World

There are many types of self-harm. This site focuses mainly on self-injury, where the self-harm involves tissue damage – cutting, burning and so on. However, some people would consider eating disorders and even drug and alcohol addiction to be a form of self-harm. Other common types of self-harm include taking overdoses, compulsive skin picking and trichotillomania (pulling out your hair).
nWhatever form of self-harm you struggle with, you’re welcome here. Some of the information is only relevant to self-injury, but where possible we have included links and ideas for those who live with other types of self-harm. If you use a number of different self-destructive ways of coping, you may also find resources for people with borderline personality disorder helpful.
