What is Self-Harm?

Self-harm, also known as self-mutilation, cutting, or non-suicidal self-injury is any intentional injury to a person's own body. Generally, self-injury leaves marks, scars, and may cause tissue damage. Teens of all ages, education levels, races, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and religion engage in self-injurious behaviors, however self-harm occurs more often among: teen females, those who have a history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, those who engage in substance use and abuse, teens with co-occurring mental health disorders, teens who were raised in environments in which anger was not an emotion to be expressed, those who do not have the skills to express emotions, and teens without a proper social support network.

Why Do Teens Engage in Self-Injury?

It can be tremendously challenging for others to understand why teenagers self-harm. People who do not self-injure have a very difficult time understanding that self-harm is often a coping mechanism for teens and adults who do not have any other way to handle the emotional pain they feel. As contradictive as it may appear to others, the act of causing physical pain to oneself can actually make a teen who engages in self-injury feel better; many teens who engage in self-harm report that they feel no choice in their self-harming behaviors. Beyond the physical problems self-harm can unwittingly create, a major problem for those who self-injure is that the feelings of relief do not persist long after the injury. Teens have reported a multitude of reasons why they engage in self-injurious behaviors. Once a teen fully understands the triggers for self-harming, he or she can learn the valuable tools needed to stop self-harming and learn proper coping mechanism.

How is Self-Harm Treated?

At Village Behavioral Health, we offer residential treatment for teens aged 13 through 17 who engage in self-destructive behaviors such as self-injury. As self-injury is often a symptom of an underlying emotional problem, we offer co-occurring disorder treatment aimed at finding alternative ways to cope with self-injury triggers, mental health disorders, and substance abuse. Medications such as anti-anxiety agents, antidepressants, and other drugs may be used to manage co-occurring disorders. Most self-injury treatments include various therapeutic modalities to teach teens alternate ways of coping with their emotions. Individual therapy can be extremely helpful for teens who self-injure as it helps teens to understand the source of their self-injurious behaviors. Additionally, it can help teens learn other ways to cope with their triggers for self-harm. Group therapy can help teens who self-injure bond with others struggling to overcome similar challenges. Family therapy can help mend any strained family relationships that may have resulted from self-injury. Village Behavioral Health has helped countless teens learn new, healthy ways to cope with self-injury, and create a happy, stable, self-injury free life.
