Depression treatment is available at Take Charge Inc., in Overland Park, Kansas, for people at risk or who self-harm. When tension, emptiness, frustration, anger, or self-loathing become unmanageable, some people harm themselves as an outlet for their emotional distress. Self-harm is the act of intentionally injuring oneself to inflict pain that is not intended to be suicidal. Self-harm allows them to process negative feelings by distracting, feeling something physical if they are numb, have a sense of control, punish themselves and express emotions.
Clinically, this is referred to as non-suicidal self-injury disorder (NSSID), but it may also be known as self-injury, self-mutilation, or self-abuse.
People who engage in self-harm often experience feelings of shame and guilt afterward, which unleashes even more emotional distress, which then leads to another round of self-injury. It’s a vicious cycle that can interfere with your everyday routine, steal your happiness, and negatively impact your overall quality of life.
Self-harm is more common in females, who make up as much as 65% of all those who injure themselves. However, some experts suggest that self-injury may be under-reported in boys and men.
