Would scratching count as self harm?

Don’t worry, I’m not asking for myself. My friend has told me that she scratches her arms really hard whenever she’s angry or upset. But she said that I shouldn’t worry... although, wouldn’t scratching be a part of self harm? She’s shown me her red scratches and I noticed 4 nail shaped punctures (Like as though she just digged her nails into her skin really hard)

This might be a dumb question, and I’m sorry if it is. I just care for my friend and need to know

  • Yeah, it is. Regardless of what tool you use, if you're causing harm to your body on purpose, that's self harm.
