I’ve recently found out my 14 year old son started self harming because o had a call from the school saying they had noticed te scars. I’ve talked to him but he is refusing any kind of help. I don’t know what else to do.

usually people that harm them selves like cutters are basically trying to take emotional pain which they cant deal with and make it physical which can be dealt with easier ie bandages or doctors
has anything happen to him lately like loosing a pet or being picked on in school etc

has his behavior changed not going outside or answering the phone etc....

I am in the same situation. I saw marks on her thigh and was sick to my stomach. These years are so difficult. I asked my 13 year old about them and she won’t talk to me. I reassured her that I loved her and that this is not a good thing. I immediately got her into Councling and. Have been watching her very closely. Have you tried to get him into counseling?
