*>About The Thread<*
----
~*TPT is a discussion thread revolving around self-harming behaviour. TPT does not advocate or support self harm. We are not a formal support thread; however, we offer understanding to those that are brave enough to come forward and talk about their experiences with self harm, or the experiences of those that they love. Our goal is to create understanding about this coping mechanism and we hope to give explanation to those who do not understand.

Once again: We are not a formal support thread. We encourage discussion, opinions and questions, as well as sharing personal reasons for the act of self-injury and tips on how to stop. We encourage recovery and moving past your past. Self harm is not simple or easy to recover from, and we understand that. We are not here to tell you to seek therapy, nor are we here to tell you what you "need" or "should do". We are simply here to offer a hand in getting through whatever you are doing, even if it is nothing at all. Unbiased support can be the most helpful at times, and we know that it is much easier to stop self harm when there is someone beside you who has been through it. We hope for those that self harm, this thread becomes a safe, nonjudgmental place that can offer solace by telling you that you are not alone.*~

~*There are a few rules that we have here at TPT, for nothing other than the safety of the people that call this place home. Considering it is a touchy subject, it is much appreciated that you respect these rules. Thank you.*~
