I've been told 'I have found some sort of coping mechanism, something which I've never needed to do before but temporarily it helps me to let out my emotions-even though it is quite painful'. This was a text I received.

This person has been going through a difficult time... does this message suggest they may ave begun self harming?? What Is a coping mechanism?
How can I help?

A coping mechanism is something a person does to help them deal with a situation. Although the message is alarming I wouldn’t jump straight to self harm, perhaps it would be better to ask the person to explain more and help them through it, not assume the worst. It’s nice of you to care enough to want to help though.

Perhaps. You could ask them what the coping mechanism is.
