Online Activities of Youth Who Engage in Self-Harm Behaviors

How might the Internet help or harm youth with self-harm behaviors?

Posted Aug 24, 2015

Following up last month's post on websites about self-harm, we explore what young people who engage in self-harm behavior do online, in our new infographic. Compared to youth who do not engage in self-harm, youth with self-harm behaviors use the Internet in different ways. This information may provide channels through which distressed youth can be reached.

For full details, see our infographic Online Activities of Youth who Engage in Self-Harm Behaviors.
