WHO self-harms?

People from all walks of life self-harm regardless of:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Ethnicity
  • Religion
  • Ability/ disability
  • Background
  • Education
  • Social Class
  • Sexuality
  • 1 in 10 young people across the UK have self-harmed by the age of 16.
  • Thought to be the second highest reason for A&E admissions.

It`s hard to get a precise figures on self-harm as the definitions tend to differ. Also the level of taboo around the subject is so high that the most keep it concealed and this naturally omits them from research.



You are not alone.
