Question Quick question - December 16th 2013, 04:37 AM

I self harm. I really want to talk to an adult about it because only my 2 close friends know about it and can't offer much help themselves, but the last people I want to know are my parents. If I tell a teacher or social worker at my school are they required to tell my parents since I'm causing harm to myself? My school has a nice program where you can see a social worker 12 times before they call your parents and say that you've been seeing them. Is there any chance that they'll keep their promise of confidentiality because of the harm I'm causing myself?

Hi Fighting,

I suppose it depends on your location, in my school, a friend of mine self-harmed on school site and the teacher who she spoke to hold her parents, he said he would lose his job if he didn't.

I suppose so long as you don't do anything on school-site or during the 12 lessons, their promise of confidentiality would be reliable, there's no real way to tell without trying it.

Sorry that this isn't much help, I have little experience with therapy.

Stay safe.

PM/VM Me if you need any sort of help, I welcome ANYONE who wants to talk.
