Self-Harm Diary Tool
Self-harm is a way of coping with distressing or overwhelming emotions. We are all individuals and this means that different experiences affect people differently. There are lots of factors that can change how we are affected by an experience. The same experience might affect us one way today and affect us differently tomorrow.
Often, people who self-harm don’t always know what triggers their self-harm urges. This diary can be used to think about what was happening just before you started to think about harming yourself. This could be where you were, what you were doing or who you were with. The diary can also be used to record how you were feeling before and after you harmed yourself. This tool can then be used to understand any patterns in experiences that lead you to thinking about self-harm. You can then use the diary to plan for similar experiences happening in the future. You can download the diary once you are finished by clicking the GENERATE PDF OR SEND IT BY EMAIL button at the bottom of the page.
