Teen Self-Harm Types
Different Types of Self-Harm in Teenagers
This is the most common form of self-harm among teenagers. It usually involves using a sharp object to make cuts on the skin.
This involves using a heat source, like a cigarette or lighter, to burn the skin. The person may also use chemicals to cause burns.
This involves hitting oneself with an object, like a fist or a belt. The person may hit themselves all over their body or in a specific area.
This is similar to hitting, but involves punching oneself instead of using an object.
This involves purposely pulling out hair from the head or other areas on the body.
This involves teens engaging in binge drinking and illicit drug use, sometimes to the point of overdose.
