Understanding Adolescent Self-Injury

Self-Injury is the self-inflicted and deliberate damaging or destruction of bodily tissue, without suicidal intent, to cope with feelings of distress. It is estimated that over 17% of adolescents inflict self-injury throughout the world, and 12-37% of adolescents do within the United States.
