Hi, How do you help someone who has self harmed for the first time? They said it's not a big deal. That they are okay and stop worrying about this. Things like this happen. I'm not sure what to do.

Hey,


It's great you want to help someone in your life who is struggling with self-harm. One thing you can do is offer to be there for them if they need anything. Sometimes just listening to someone talk when they need to get things off their mind can make a world of difference.

Something else you can do is encourage the person to seek help whether they talk to you, a parent, a teacher, a doctor, or a mental health professional. You cannot force them to seek help if they are not ready; it is ultimately up to them. You can encourage them to get help, though.

Some people who self-harm don't want to or aren't ready to use alternatives yet, but you could always discuss different alternatives and resources such as hotlines with them and see what they think.
