Monday Free Download: Seeking Solutions to Self-injury; a Guide for Young People
This brief self-help guide was written for young people to help them with a friend who self-injures, or perhaps to work through their own issues with self-injury. The guide was based on over 60 interviews with young self-injurers, as well as 40 professionals from a range of backgrounds who had had some experience with management of NSSI.
It may be of use to a young person you know, despite the fact it is focused on an Australian audience. Please feel free to download and use it as you see fit.
