Self harm amongst our youth is a serious issue and is only becoming more common in New Zealand. If you find out your child is self harming; the most important thing to do is listen and be calm and reassuring. It is a good idea to create a safe environment for them to openly talk as it is a much better coping mechanism for their emotions, anxiety, stress or depression.

Comment on Facebook Self harm amongst ...

Love this article informativeness. I use to self harm years ago. It hurts even more hearing a family member is doing it. I wouldnt ever wish for anyone to be that hurt, that the only way they can relieve that hurt is by self harming. As i know how it felt to do this. I know as well how hurt these young people feel.

I could say so much on this what I know through experience and what I have seen but I know I would be wasting my time' at the end of the day people get paid a lot of money for our children's anxiety stress and depression.

Omg it's not just youth trust me on that

Dont tell them not to do it. Suggest alternatives. Telling them not to let out their emotions, even though it isnt the best way. Will only make them bottle it up even more. Instead support your child with healthy solutions to deal with their issues.

Agree

Please Note: that many may be doing this on a regular basis but keeping it secret by harming in places that people can not see. If anyone tells you they are doing things that bring them harm please take them seriously and never dismiss the idea. If you have to keep it confidential to gain their confidence to keep them safe by being the one person they may be talking to about it, make sure you do as you promised but please seek out as much information as you can so you can guide this person and be there for them. Please ask that they always tell you the truth and assure them you are there for them 24 / 7. Please do not judge. They really need you.

Go lobby the education system. It's there it all begins.

The amount of serious abuse I've witnessed inside of police stations ought to be considered as well. Some of the underground cells I've seen are run like zoos, and the people treated similarly to farmed animals. 🤷‍♂️ Breaking the silence on that.

How can police help,? You target Māori _& Pacific to incriminate The police are a gang

Ecstasy, molly, pingers or MDMA are most commonly taken before or during parties and raves. These drugs are prevalent amongst youth in New Zealand, that is why it is so important to educate yourself and family about the effects of easily accessible drugs. The more familiar you are with the drugs the better equipped you are for a bad reaction. These class B drugs are known to make you feel like moving which could put the user at risk of overheating, exhaustion, and collapsing. For more information about the effects of these drugs and what to look out for, please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/drug-abuse/.
