long sleeves. or wear like a jumper over your shirt or something. use makeup, (only if your scars are fully healed or you’ll get an infection !) henna’s a good idea!

for me, BIO oil worked wonders. it could rid of my scar marks super fast, but im not sure if that would work for you, worth a shot tho!

Had SH in our family a while back. The turning point was finding an alternative outlet to express and release that pain, in talking to someone trusted and independent. I’m so proud of her full recovery, her courage and resilience, and she is too. Things can improve, but it’s an easier battle if you have someone at your side.

It’s not as easy as to just go up to a specialist and say: “look I need help.” It takes ages just to take off a hoodie incase people see and judge you or snake you out and get you into trouble.

The reason people cut themselves is because it causes a chemical reaction in the brain releasing dopamine. Your body is lacking in dopamine that's why you can't seem to stop cutting yourself. Next time you get the urge to cut yourself, do something else that causes your brain to release dopamine like exercise.

Yes it's going to be hard but they ARE A part of YOU ! T shirt and say Dad/Mum we need to talk. Better than any therapist,they're your parents,firstly they see,mum's specially x videcall call mum first,Mums know best ! Better out in the open with family.
As much as I wish this was always true, it depends on the family. I hadn't self-harmed in a few months when my school/parents found out, but then the man I used to call my father reacted so badly that it sent me into a bad relapse.

By all means, accept your family's support if you can. But as a dependent minor - when it comes to self-harm or sexuality etc - you need to consider your situation first. How can you best keep yourself safe? (From both environmental factors and self-harm.) You know your parents.
