How do I get help and treatment for self-harm?

If you have self-harmed in the past and your GP thinks that you may self-harm again, you may be offered an appointment with community mental health services for an assessment. If you are very distressed, if there is a strong risk that you may harm yourself again, or if you have asked to see a specialist, you should be offered an appointment with community mental health services as soon as possible.

Your GP or other healthcare professional in primary care should continue to look after your physical health, including any effect on your physical health because of self-harm.
