General Self Harm Articles

Welcome to General Self Harm Articles section! Here you will find a collection of articles that vary considerably in their angle, content and tone. All contain information our members have found useful over the years, but like any part of RYL, some will of course mean more to some people than others. Take some time to read them, because as we have seen a million times on RYL, understanding the problem is half of the battle - and those who we have seen commit to learning more about why they do what they do are the ones you progress the most rapidly towards recovery.
