it depends on what kind of self harm. cutting they are probably going to give you stichtes and some medication for a proper healing proccess. they may also advise you see a therapist or something.

When my step sister went they made sure none of her wounds were infected and they recommended some people to talk to about her issues. Granted, she was pretty p.o.'d and threw quite a fit and they sent her to mental health for a 72 hour involuntary hold. despite her being very unhappy about it, It wound up helping so much and she's doing great now. As long as you are compliant and actually follow through with advice and treatment, it will be fine :)

they will most likely put you in the mental health section of the hospital for a while, then they'll send you to counseling, maybe medication if its bad. Good luck :)

They will talk to you and your mother. And, they might prescribe you a medication.

Self harm is very selfish, and causes more pain to those who love you, than it does to you.
Your mom is doing the right thing. Try to cooperate with the medical team.

When I went they put me through counceling and put me on medications for anxiety and depression. It Just depends where your at and how bad it is I guess..

If I'm not mistaken, you asked this already recently. I answered it, I'll do it again. If they feel you are a danger to yourself based on your scars they can do a psych hold and keep you for 72 hours for observation.
