Faststats is an official application from the centers for disease control and preventions (cdc) national center for health statistics (nchs) and puts access to topic-specific statistics. A 2008 publication by the us national library of medicine reports the following nonsuicidal self injury (nssi) statistics (5) 13 to 12 of us adolescents have engaged in some type of self injury. Cutting and burning are the most common types of non-suicidal self-injury. Self-harm may be a sign of depression, anxiety, or other mental illness, but not every teen with mental illness will self-harm. If your teen frequently dresses in long sleeves during hot weather, avoids bathing suits, or wears multiple wrist bands, they may be trying to hide marks on their body, whitlock says. The terms self-harm, self-mutilation, self-abuse, or self-injury (si) refer to the act of purposely harming oneself. Often referred to as cutting, a common way people hurt themselves, cutting isnt the only way a person can engage in self-injury. Treatment for cutting will likely focus on helping the teen develop healthier coping mechanisms when faced with feelings of anger, stress, or sadness. It will also help boost a teens self-esteem, help manage any underlying psychiatric problems, and help make sure that the teen isnt having thoughts of suicide. Self-harm occurs most often during the teenage and young adult years, though it can also happen later in life. Those at the most risk are people who have experienced trauma, neglect or abuse. For instance, if a person grew up in an unstable family, it might have become a coping mechanism.
