Well, for starters, it would be a good idea to reinvent yourself. I looked at your profile and saw words like "self-harmer" and "suicidal" mentioned quite a bit. The fact that you use words like that to define yourself says that you the issue runs deeper than just something you do occasionally. I can't tell you how to go about redefining yourself because I'm not you, but I too went through a dark time when I was your age (I'm not going to say I know how you feel, because I don't) and that was the only way I pulled myself out of it. When you stop thinking of yourself in negative terms, you stop doing negative things. Surround yourself with people who really know and love you, especially family and, if possible, your siblings. And whatever you do, don't turn to religion. I have my own opinions on organized religion (oh, let's just quit beating around the bush and say "Christianity"), but that is not the reason I would not turn to a minister if I were you. I would avoid it because 1) a clergyman will have ulterior motives other than helping you (like gaining another parishioner) and 2) the only way to truly confront your problems is to be existentially alive and face them head on, not pawn them off on the Divine, IMNSHO.

it takes positive people and a rubber band, ware a rubber band around you wrist and snap yourself if you feel the need to hurt yourself, it's a much safer way of doing things, and hanging with positive people and asking them for help, but if you feel like it gets out of hand seek professional help
Until you sort out the problem behind your self harming it will always be an issue for you. Those that cut say they enjoy the release it gives them. This saddens me greatly because I can't imagine how down they must be to see this as an alternative to sorting out the problem that is eating away at them.
I know how you feel. I do it a lot. I just find another way to cope. Music, drawing, writing, etc. I know I'm making it sound easy and like it is nothing. It's not though. I'm not gonna lie it's a huge process, but in time. It is so worth it. Hope everything gets better for you.
