Self harm is a coping method. It's used as a means of having more control, feeling pain for the purpose of reminding oneself that they /can/ feel things, punishment against oneself, and/or much, much more. It doesn't make a lot of sense until you experience it.
Scientifically, it helps because they pain caused by the self harm causes endorphin's to be released that help calm the person and make them feel better, regardless of the original reason. (I think the same kind of thing makes people go into shock but I'm not a doctor.)
With suicide, I can only really speak for myself. I've been to the point where I was so horribly unhappy that it felt like it was the only thing to do to make things at least not as shitty. I got to the point where it was hard to breathe, and I couldn't get out of bed in the morning and go to school. Sometimes I couldn't get out of bed at all. I missed three months of school because of my depression and anxiety. Medication and counseling didn't help. The only reason I never attempted suicide was because of my family, who I'm not even close to, but I couldn't imagine putting them through that.
Some people are suicidal because they feel too much. Some people are suicidal because they feel nothing at all. Some people are suicidal and they don't know why.
It's kind of the same way with self harm. Whether someone starts because they feel too much, too little, or nothing at all, it's still there. It's still has the (very high) potential of becoming an addiction.
I haven't self harmed in months and I still get random thoughts almost everyday that I should. Just one, or just two, or just ten more little scars; but I'm happy right now. Or at least, I'm a hell of a lot happier than I was. It doesn't stop the thoughts. I can't really tell you why.
I hope that makes sense in some messed up way.

well can't see me getting like that. I rarely get depressed to where I'm like fuck the world. I'm not saying I'm always happy but I'm not really depressed either. I'm pretty much neutral. I've never had suicidal tendencies nor have I have ever thought of cutting.
Good look with your problems.(And i say this with 0% douchebaggery)

I honestly just say it because even though it may not effect you, it might one day effect someone you care about, or your kid, or your spouse. It's something that you should definitely keep an open mind to, because it's a lot more common than you think.
I highly recommend reading Hyperbole and a Half's depression comics, because they're actually pretty accurate and pretty funny

Ok, well we haven't talked about it in Psychology, that will be more next term. But, to me, I consider suicide a point of insanity, why else would one consider their death the only possible choice? It's irrational and I still consider it a selfish and cowardice act. Though, I've never been depressed for more than a day, so nothing severe, but I understand enough to know why people think suicide is the only answer. You just think nothing will get better at all, and that life just sucks and that's just how it's going to be, you can't do anything about it.
But I still can't compare to depression long term really. I've noticed, in my life, that I become more of a drifter for some period of time, neither happy nor sad, basically emotionless towards stuff. That's the closest thing I can compare to with depression.

And no, people who just 'cut' for attention don't actually end up cutting, because that shit fuckin hurts. They just scrap a branch across their wrist and show people.
Also, self harm isn't just cutting. It's starving, binging, purging, hitting, and much more.
People who self harm become addicted, and can not stop without considerable strength, effort, determination, and support.
