Strong trigger warning, explicit details of self injury, please keep safe.
I’ve been doing a lot of research at work this week around borderline personality disorder, I came across this really powerful video about self-harm which tackles important issues such as behaviour that is deemed as attention seeking or manipulative, something that really needs tackling around self-injury.
It such a powerful video about two people with self-harm experiences. I’ve had personal experience in relation to my mental health problems where professionals have told me that my ‘insight’ into what’s going on for me is brilliant but I can also see how it makes it even more painful to deal with, you know what’s happening is wrong and needs to change but it’s not about that.
If you are struggling with self-harm, please try and access support. You don’t have to deal with it on your own. You can gain support from your GP or go to A&E.
