Self-Injury Outreach and Support is a Canadian non-profit outreach initiative providing information and resources about self-injury to those who self-injure, those who have recovered, and those who want to help.
If you would like more formal crisis support, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, Trans Lifeline at 877-565-8860 (U.S.) or 877-330-6366 (Canada), or The Trevor Project at 866-488-7386. If you don’t like talking on the phone, you can text HOME to 741741 to get to Crisis Text Line. If you’d like to talk to a peer, warmline.org contains links to warmlines in the United States. If you’re not in the U.S., click here for a connection to crisis centers around the world.
NOTE: Many of these resources could utilize restrictive interventions, like active rescues (wellness or welfare checks) involving law enforcement or emergency services. A warmline is least likely to do this, but still might have these policies. You can ask if this is a possibility at any point in your conversation if this is a concern for you.
