Hi new here, I've been selfharming since I was 15, im 53 now! I hadn't done it for nearly 3 years but at the weekend I got very angry and frustrated at what God only knows. And I had a relapse, I contacted my GP for help but there seems to be no help for people my age that selfharm its mostly for young people, im guessing I'm not the only one any advice would be greatly appreciated I what can do. Thanks.

What does age have to do with it? That just sounds strange to say "no help for people my age." If you want help there must be someone who can help. Is a competent mental health person really going to say, "Sorry, I can only help young people."

I am 38 and self harm I spoke to my GP who was very sympathetic and spoke to my therapy team, there is help out there regardless of age. Maybe call samaritans or use shout they are a text service if you dont want to speak over the phone to someone.

You arent alone

Thanks for your reply, I guess if I want help bad enough it's out there I will have to try harder.
