Blogs and stories about self harm

These blogs are written by people who have personal experience of self-harming. By writing about the issue they aim to help breakdown the stereotypes and stigmatising ideas that can be associated with self harm.

If you are self-harming you should talk to you GP for help or call the Samaritans on 08457 90 90 90. You can find more information about what self harm is from Rethink Mental Illness, Mind and the NHS.


Who can I talk to about my mental health?

I have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Schizotypal Personality Disorder (StPD), Depression and Agoraphobia, so a bit of a list there. It’s a struggle knowing where one conditions begins and another ends. I don’t feel like I have a “normal” day and if I have, at any point, a “normal moment” I try and hold on to it for dear life but everything changes so quickly.
