Treatment For Self-Harm

Self-harm, or self-injury, is a behavior where individuals intentionally inflict physical harm on themselves as a coping mechanism for emotional or psychological distress. This condition often coexists with mental health issues like depression and anxiety and can be a precursor to more serious actions, such as suicide attempts.
