Talk with your doctor about how you're feeling and where you can turn for some extra help. This may really help you knowing that it's a confidential conversation and she can point you in the right direction, a lot of the time even despite your financial circumstances.

Speak to a trusted adult, consult with someone on 7 Cups, note down when you feel you want to self-harm and seek counselling support.

In my experience telling an adult hasn't really helped, but that's probably not true for everyone. Try finding an alternative to self harm?
