1 in 5 Young Women Have Self-Harmed, Study Reveals
So many young people are self-harming that it risks becoming normalized and increasing the number who kill themselves when they are older, a study reveals. One in five girls and young women in England aged 16 to 24 have cut, burned or poisoned themselves, according to research that mental health experts said was "very worrying." The findings, published in the
journal, show that self-harm has risen across both sexes and all age groups since 2000. In the population as a whole it almost trebled from 2.4% then to 6.4% in 2014.
