Tips on Dealing With Self-Harm

My tips on dealing with self-harm are now up on my site. (I had some technical difficulties with my redesigned site.) These are the tips I wrote that are on the back of my three bookmarks. If you know someone who is dealing with or has dealt with self-harm, you may find it helpful to read “Helpful Responses to Someone Who’s Self-Harmed”.

If you yourself use self-harm, or have in the past, you may want to read “Alternatives to Self-Harm” or How To Stop Self-Harming. These are all things that helped me. I hope they’ll help you, or someone you know.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
