Cutting skin due to anger, depression, loneliness, self-harm. How to stop?

Hey, I really need help. I self-harm and though I don t want to, I feel I really need to stop. No one knows about it though I roll my sleeve up to 20 cuts and no one even cares. It s blatent that the cuts are there but it seams no one cares about it. I cut when I m either; angry, depressed, lonley or feel worthless. I need to stop so that my parents and boyfriend never find out, i just dont know how.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
It need to be taken seriously at least by you.

It does not matter if for the time being if other people dont take it seriously

I would say it is a psychiatric emergency and you need to consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist

There are effective treatments available in form of medicines and counselling
