Teenage: Self Harm
The most common reasons given by pupils for deliberate self harm were 'to find relief from a terrible state of mind' or because they had 'wanted to die'. Contrary to popular belief few were 'trying to frighten someone' or simply 'get attention'.
The majority of those who self-harm cut themselves.

up to half of those who self-harm seek help from friends before acting.
