Addressing Self-Harm in Colorado Springs—Counselors and Therapists

An 18 year old on his own for the first time at college. A 28 year old mother of twins overwhelmed with life. A 14 year old moving to a new community.  A 55 year old man who has been let go from a downsizing company. From the outside, these individuals look like they are at different phases in life and would have nothing in common; however, upon closer inspection, what they share is emotional distress. The stressors are different but how they may be managing those overwhelming emotions may not be.

What is Self-Harm?

Self-harm, also called self-injury, is the urge to deliberately hurt yourself. While generally not a suicidal action, it is an attempt to cope with the intense feelings one is having. Self-harm may help distract, express emotions one cannot put into words, or release emotional pain.

Self-harm can last for a short timeframe while dealing with overwhelming stressors or as a regular and ongoing mechanism to cope.

How to support someone who is self-harming

  • Listen without judgment. Lecturing, criticizing or offering advice may make their urge to self-harm more intense.
  • Express your love and support. Communicate how much you care for them and that you are available whenever they need you. You cannot force them into healing, but you can be there when they are ready to take next steps in managing their emotions in healthier ways.
