Hi Samii! Hope you’re feeling a little better. I have some ideas that may help you:
Distraction Techniques: Engage in activities that capture your attention and divert your focus away from self-harm urges. This could be reading, watching a movie, or doing a puzzle.
Create a Safety Plan: Develop a plan for when you feel the urge to self-harm. Include a list of contacts you can reach out to, coping strategies, and things that bring you comfort.
Seek Professional Help: A mental health professional can provide tailored strategies to address the underlying issues leading to self-harming behaviors.
