Self Harm and Self Defeating Behaviors

Overcoming Self Defeating Behaviors

Teens that suffer from depression or other mental or emotional issues use self-harm as an emotional release. Self-harm is often a behavior kept secret from friends and family by the teen.

This action is a negative way troubled teens try to express hurt or confusion. Self-harm and self defeating behaviors are done by teens that struggle to find a positive outlet for their moods and feelings. 

Teens in this situation need help as soon as possible. Behaviors like self-harm can be extremely dangerous, although teens who self-harm usually do not have the intentions to commit suicide, it sometimes happens. 

Some signs of self-harm are...

  • Unexplained injuries (cuts, scratches, burns, bruises)
  • Wearing long sleeves even in hot weather
  • Secretive or withdrawn  
  • Low self esteem
  • A history of eating disorders
  • Trouble dealing with emotions
  • Acting out in violent ways (physical or verbal fights)

Liahona Academy provides therapeutic treatment for troubled teens for recovery. We support troubled teens and encourage them to make changes for themselves internally. Our certified teachers are also able to help students that struggled with school before get back on track with academics or repair credits.

Liahona Academy has a staff that is here because they care about the success and recovery of troubled teens. If your teen is in need of help do not hesitate to call Liahona Academy at 1-800-675-8101
