We received an email from a young woman 23, who is depressed and self harming, she has stated that she is in a very difficult stage of her life and sees no hope. It is a sad fact of the matter that cutting and other forms of harm is increasing, we have predicted from our own research that unfortunately more people will turn to cutting, it is going to get worst as more people seek a way out of the corner which they feel they are backed into. If you are depressed and self harming you are not alone, in this post we will address how depression starts early in life, leading to a future generation of cutters.

Internal stresses can originate from school, families, relationships or abuses; these are often the real causes for self harm. If you are self harming you are not a bad person, you have internal stresses that cause you to turn on yourself.
