March is self-harm awareness month. According to Mental Health America, it is estimated that two million people in the U.S. injure themselves in some way. Self-harm, such as cutting, burning or scratching usually serves as a mechanism to express emotions or to feel a sense of control. While it may lead to a difficult conversation, offering support may be something that is needed. People who suffer from borderline personality disorder may be at risk for self-harm. Visit Johns Hopkins’ Health Library to learn more. If you or a loved one is suffering from self-harm, the experts in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences may be able to help.

If you knew that someone was self-harming, would you talk to them about it?
