Survivor Room / Re: SH ED MH Support, moving on etc
« Last post by Vermilion on November 14, 2020, 01:52:04 PM »
I struggle to verbalise a need for support or how I'm feeling about things which is why I often write things down and let them read it or I send my CC a letter if there's something that I need to discuss but won't have the courage to bring up myself.

The purpose of the research is to explore the difference between individuals who self-harm and individuals who do not self-harm in terms of self-esteem, self-disgust, and body experience.

There is very little research relating to individuals in the general population who self-harm, and findings are often inconclusive. Therefore, your participation in the study will assist in further understanding this important area. If self-esteem, self-disgust, and body experience in relation to self-harm can be understood, then appropriate support measures can be put in place.

Even if you do not self-harm, you can still take part in the research.

Participants must be over the age of 18 years old.

Participants will be required to complete an online survey, which should take about 20-30 minutes to complete.

Trigger warning: this post and the survey talks about self-harm

Hello everyone,

I'm a student at the University of Edinburgh currently doing some research for my clinical psychology training. I'm looking for participants for my research project, anyone aged 16-24 can take part and all responses are hugely appreciated!

The MEESHA (Mentalisation, Expressed Emotion, Self-Harm and Attachment) research project is an online survey for anyone aged 16 to 24 years old. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes to complete. Your answers will help us learn how families can support young people who self-harm.
 
The survey asks questions about your wellbeing and your family, how your family expresses emotions and how you understand yourself and others. It also asks about self-harm. Your answers are anonymous.

For more information and to take part:

Thanks very much, all help is appreciated!
Jamie

Perhaps if you can work on your self esteem, some of those feelings of guilt/shame would lessen. Professionals are only the same as everyone else, with their own sets of struggles and problems which you might cope with better than them. If you believe that the people you're talking to are on the same level, it's easier to communicate.

How do you do it? How do you move on? Or how do you actually verbalise a need for support?
Does the shame and guilt ever leave?
I'm not where I was 10 years ago, but I still feel utter shame and humiliation whenever I have to speak to any professionals

Sadly there isn't a cure for autism but you can learn to live with it.

Some of us don't want one. It's integral to who I am.

Only tell them what they need to know but keep it vague.
