Unhappy PSHE DAY+Nervousness - June 25th 2018, 08:01 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Alright so as some of you know i'm in school and i think I've posted or told someone this,tomorrow i have PSHE day and we're learning about MENTAL HEALTH and i know one thing we're going to talk about is self harm which i'm nervous about since i myself self harm and people are probably going to say "Oh they just do it for attention" or "They're just weird".Only my close friendship group actually know about my 'secret' (self harming) so i think it's going to be awkward since we all are going to sit near each other. I know this may sound stupid but i'm really nervous and don't know if i should go to school tomorrow.Just thought i'd pit this out there.. :/



Alright just a quick update wasn't to bad but wasn't in the lesson about self harming with friend in another part of school still had to read a leaflet and that then my ex (also close freind) in the assembly kept on tapping my chair but silently if you get what i mean when they mentioned the self harming lesson he know's about that after us dating for a month or two but anyway another story that's a bit confusing,haha.But yeah a pretty good PSHE day other than that just thought i'd update this.

Do you think you could talk to your friends about this, maybe they can help support you a bit during the seminar tomorrow? Another thing would be to let them know that you don't want them making it obvious, such as looking at you when "self harm" is mentioned or any other kind of gesture that might give your struggles away. Best of luck tomorrow.

Some people, unfortunately, may say and think those things about self harm. But I guess that's the point of the PSHE lesson- to dispel those myths and actually learn more about mental health, including self-harm.

I agree with Jena about letting your close friends know that you are worried about how the lesson might go and what others might say. You can always talk to your friends or the teacher at the end if anything upset you.

Hope tomorrow goes okay
