Self-injuring behavior can be triggered by a variety of causes. These can include mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It may also be caused by the presence of other issues such as substance abuse, bullying, or chronic trauma. In some cases, self-injury can simply be an expression of overwhelming emotions that are not readily expressed through healthier coping mechanisms. Rockland Recovery Behavioral Health offers outpatient self-injury treatment in Sharon, Massachusetts.

Our Massachusetts mental health condition program provides flexible support for those living with self-harm tendencies who do not need crisis support. Call 855.520.0531 to find help now.

Understanding the Causes of Self-Injury

Self-injury, also known as self-harm, is often a sign of deeper emotional distress. It’s not a mental health condition in itself but a behavior that indicates a need for better coping strategies. Some common causes include:

  • Emotional distress or turmoil, such as depression, anxiety, or trauma-related conditions
  • Difficulty managing emotions
  • A history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • Feelings of loneliness, emptiness, guilt, or worthlessness
  • Perfectionism
  • A desire to escape or avoid difficult emotions or situations
  • A sense of self-hatred

It’s important to remember that self-injury is not a solution to any problem. The roots of the behavior need to be addressed for long-term healing and success. Rockland Recovery Behavioral Health provides comprehensive outpatient self-injury treatment so you can manage your mental health without putting your life on hold.
