Self-harm is something that is continuously rising among young people in the UK. In fact, according to a study published by the Lancet Psychiatry, 1 in 5 women in England aged 16-24 self-harm.
Around 50% of people that self-harm don’t access support, according to that same study, so it’s more important than ever that friends and family are there to offer comfort and support.
Seeing Beyond The Scars explores how we should support those who self-harm, and how we can improve our understanding of the issue to help us support effectively.
The following audio will discuss the sensitive issue of self-harming. If you feel you are unable to listen to such content, please refer to our website where you can find out who to go to for help. If you are in urgent need of support, call the Samaritans on 116 123.
