Young Men are Hidden Self-Harmers


When it comes to information on self-harm, young men are often overlooked.

The Mix writes up the findings from this report and discusses how we can help young men when they are not okay.

This news is eye-opening and should be known by parents, young people and educators who work with children on a regular basis. Read this news article in order to find out exactly what you need to know about young men who are self-harming.


This article is eye opening to say the least. I work in this field and still found the results shocking so I think it is an important resource for parents and educators to see in order to open their eyes to how vast the problem of self-harm is. The collaboration between three well known self-harm charities only adds strength to the claims being made throughout the post.
