Austin Self-Harm Therapy
Overcoming Self-Harm and Developing Healthy Coping Strategies
Self-harm, also called self-injury and cutting, refers to the deliberate harming of oneself through one or a variety of means. Often seen among adolescents, self-harm also affects male and female adults and, according to many studies, seems to be on the rise. Approximately 6-8% of adolescents and young adults report current chronic self injury, and 12-24% of young adults have self injured. Self-harm can be an overwhelming issue to address, and it can be difficult to know how to respond.
