I work at a residential treatment center for children who've been abused or have mental illnesses. My own issues are VERY hidden. Sometimes I have to intervene when a client is harming themselves or wants to. And while I do my job pretty well I sometimes am triggered by these events and go home and cut. I like my job but I wonder if I don't belong there....?

You are very strong to work there. But if it is causing you to self harm regularly then it is not good for you. Do other people suffer from similar things? Can you ask how others cope - no need to mention the cutting, just ask how they cope with taking all that negativity in.
