How to tell your teacher that you self harm watch

    • Thread Starter

    I really want to tell my teacher that I self harm sand he's really supportive of me when i tell him about my less important problems (the ones that he dosent have to report) but I tried to tell him and he reminded me that if i told him that then he would have to report it and I can't have my parents find out I'm already getting counciling that my parents don't know about

    I need to find away to tell my teacher without my parents finding out

    you may get more answers if you post this one in Health. The problem with something like this, is if you're under 16, he may have to say something to someone higher up. And if he believes that you're in danger, he may have to tell someone.

    I don't think there is a way. The teachers have a duty of care for you. Your teacher will tell your head of year or someone with more authority who will most likely tell your parents and you might have a meeting together.

    This is purely from past experience.
