Dear Self Harm Community,

I'm seeking help for my friend who has been self harming himself for some time now. He has trusted no one with this secret but me. I do not wish to betray his trust, so I have been doing research on the subject. I am asking for your input on how I can help him. He hits his fits on cement till they bleed and he can't feel them. When the pain goes away, within 3 days, he does it again.

Thank you,
Seeking_info

the best option is therapy to find what is behind why he does what he does. the best way for you to help him is just to be there for him.
