... a note from Ziggy
Hi there. These help pages are here to give you a bit of information and support for any problems or concerns that are affecting you. Many young people on this site write to us with their messages and personal stories. There is a contact form below for you to do just that if you want to. Your name and email address will be kept completely confidential!
There are lots of reasons why young people might self-harm. The need to hurt yourself usually comes from emotions that are very difficult to cope with.
Young people might self-harm because it's a way of releasing tension or controlling something. It’s a physical pain that you can deal with, rather than an emotional feeling that you might find hard to cope with. Self-harm can also be used as a form of self-punishment for something you feel bad about.
Feeling alone, angry, experiencing low self-esteem and not feeling good enough can also lead to self-harming. The reasons for self-harming can be very personal so it's okay if you don't know why you self-harm. Whatever you are going through, Childline Andalucía is here for you. You don’t have to deal with things on your own and there are other ways of expressing your emotions.
