Self-Harm is an increasingly pervasive symptom of emotional distress among adolescent girls. Because it involves physical damage to the sufferer, cutting understandably evokes distress and fear in others. Viewed on a continuum, self-harming behavior can easilyóthough not always accuratelyóbe interpreted as a precursor to suicidal behavior. Because self-harm is so pervasive and so disturbing, InnerChange program director Dustin Tibbitts, LMFT, has written a three part series to help parents better understand and address this behavior.

One of my biggest passions in life and here at Fulshear Treatment to Transition is the power of advocating for YOU! Your needs are the most important entity to our vision here. As staff we take the time to listen, respond and advocate for you. You are the reason why we are here, if we don’t advocate for your needs then you will likely fall back into believing your core issues. These cores issues come in various forms from not feeling heard, not being worthy enough of our love or care, and never feeling good enough for yourselves or others. Our goal is to help you realize your potential. We are here to fight for your needs in treatment and in the outside world.
