Your Current Risk for Self Harm / Suicide


High Risk

SELF HARM / SUICIDE

Self-harm is when somebody intentionally damages or injures their body. It's usually a way of coping with or expressing overwhelming emotional distress. Sometimes when people self-harm, they feel on some level that they intend to die.

Fleeting suicidal thoughts and feelings are relatively common. Many people may momentarily contemplate wanting to end their life during periods of extreme stress. However, very few people will act on these thoughts and for most individuals, they are transitory and last only for a very short time.

However for some people, contemplating suicide is more prolonged and distressing. These feelings may occur more and more often, and can become very persistent and distressing.

Suicidal thoughts are most commonly associated with an underlying physical or psychological problem, such as severe and chronic pain or depression. In most situations, there is a range of warning signs that are likely to point to an increased risk of suicide.
