Welcome to the Self-Injury Center Homepage

Self-injury (SI) is known by many names, including self-harm, self-mutilation, and self-abuse. There are so many misconceptions about self-injury. Among them, people who self-injure are really trying to commit suicide. In reality, self-injury is the act of physically hurting yourself on purpose without the intent of committing suicide. It is a method of coping during an emotionally difficult time that helps some people temporarily feel better because they have a way to physically express and release the tension and the pain they hold inside. Research also shows that chemical changes in the bodies of people who self-harm make them feel happier and more relaxed.
