Cutting and Other Forms of Self-Injury

Common characteristics of those who injure themselves—

Cutters use self-injuring as a way to deal with overwhelming emotions. Cutting releases endorphins that can relieve stress. Cutting can also satisfy a need to be punished. But injuring yourself is only a short-term solution that has to be repeated to be effective. Cutters run the risk of permanent damage, cutting too deeply by accident or catching an infection. There are better ways to deal with your emotions than cutting yourself.
