For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

Help for cutting/self-mutilation
Posted on: 01/19/2003
Could you please give me the number for a hotline dealing with cutting/self-mutilation?
Help and information are also available on the S.A.F.E. Web site (http://www.selfinjury.com/
) or by calling 1-800-DONT-CUT (note: this is not a crisis hotline). There is currently no crisis hotline for self-injurers, but if you think you may harm yourself, call the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention 1-800-SUICIDE.
