SCOPE Tip of the Week

How to Stop Self-Injury

Self-injury manifests in variety of ways.  Some students cut themselves with razors, sharp objects or pins while, others punch or burn themselves. In most cases, suicide is often not the desired outcome of the behavior. Rather, students who self-injure may seek a brief respite from their emotional pain.  They may be looking for others to notice their behavior and talk to them about their pain, a “cry for help” of sorts. Then again, some students who self-injure are very private about their actions and have no desire for others to know.

For more on how to stop self-injury, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
