Luna’s story of getting help with Self Harm, Age: 16

"I struggled with child hood abuse, social anxiety, depression, and self harm... I’m so much better that 3 years ago...

What have you struggled with? When did it become too much?

I struggled with child hood abuse, social anxiety, depression, and self harm

 

What kind of support did you get at first? Did it work?

At first I went to my friends that I trusted. They helped me to stop self harm for the first time but did not help when I relapsed.

Were there any turning points where things really started to change for the better?

When I was 13 my mom found my blade under my bed and got me the help I needed by getting a therapist.

What’s your life like now? What have you been able to accomplish, and what are you working towards?

Today I am still struggling with my social anxiety and self harm but my depression is not as bad and I got adopted by my 2 wonderful moms.I’m so much better that 3 years ago.

What would you say to people who are having a tough time? What’s helped you that you wish you had known earlier

Just fight and stay strong. You will get through it
