It has been known for the mentally-ill to be called "crazy", and are told that they have and deserve no rights. Specificaly people that self harm. People that self harm are not crazy. Self harm is a way to releive your anger, sadness, or they think that they deserve what harm they are inflicting onto one's self. People that self harm normally hide their scars, cuts, burns, etc and the people that don't normally just are seeking help. People with Depression are normally SH the most.
Any type of self harm is indeed crazy. Normal people on the streets do not cut themselves, or jump off of towers, and it's certainly not a normal way to express your self, you have expressions. If you are to harm yourself, you don't grasp how important a life is, and that you have lost all hope. I would not hang myself to express my feelings, or make my arms bleed and scar. So, yes the topic of self harm is usually fallen under crazy. Also, should've added more characters.
The definition of crazy is,"mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way." stated by google. I agree, there are people that do it for attention, but the people that do it for attention most likely had something wrong with them as well. I take a psychology class and this topic interests me. People that self harm have a Mental Health issue. It would surprise you how many "on the street" actually self mutilate themselves. Some people self harm in places that are hidden.
