Student Seeking Info on Self-Injury

By February 7, 2017

What are some statistics for self-injury? I’m writing a research paper about depression and decided to include self-injury, but I can’t find any good statistics. Can you help? – Eden

Hi Eden,

Thank you for your question. I’m so glad to hear that you’re helping bring light to this important subject.

We have several videos related to self-injury here on the site.  Additionally, you can review an article that was written by Marian Eberly, who appears in the clips. It’s more on the clinical side of things, but includes a lot of great information:

Treating Self-Injurious Behavior in Eating Disorders

Additionally, I encourage you to check out the book Inside a Cutter’s Mind, which we feature here on the site.

I hope you find these tools helpful. Thank you again for speaking out on such an important topic. Let us know how it goes.

Kindest regards,
Constance Rhodes
