View Transcript

One of the most common forms of self-harm is cutting. There is cutting and mutilation or sticking pins and cutting oneself. There are eating disorders either anorexia which is not eating or bulimia which is purging. Then there are actually attempts to take one's life or to reach out for help which we call suicide attempts. The cry for help still needs to be taken seriously because it is a precursor or a kid might accidentally, even though they are asking for help, might accidentally kill themselves due to their cry for help.
