Everyone faces troubles and challenges in their life - and self-harm is the way some people try to cope with the pressures. But what can trigger this way of dealing with painful feelings? And what are the alternatives? This book looks at the experiences of young people, shows how to reduce the risk and find support - and explodes some myths along the way.
