Self Harm: If it’s a cry for help…. HELP!
Feb 21, 2021 Season 1 Episode 13
Sara Amundson & Laurie Edmundson

In this episode Laurie and Sara discuss their experiences with self harm and how they have overcome this behaviour with more positive coping mechanisms that keep their bodies safe while their minds are overwhelmed. 


Suicide and suicidality are also discussed in relation to self harm and how they are not as connected as people think they are. 


This episode may be triggering. Society needs to stop punishing those who self harm and pretending that it doesn’t exist.  


Trigger warnings: self-harm, suicide, overdose
