Signs of Self-injury

Adolescents often engage in self-harming behaviors alone, parents may not be aware that this problem exists.

Being observant can often uncover early signs of self-injury such as:

  • An abnormal number of cuts/burns on the wrists, arms, legs, hips or stomach
  • Wearing of long sleeves and pants even in warm weather to cover the marks
  • Frequent ‘accidents’ that cause physical injurysigns of self-injury.jpg
  • Evidence that your teenager’s friends are self-mutilating
  • Finding razors or knives in strange locations
  • Your teen locking themselves away for long periods of time in their bedroom or bathroom
  • Reluctance to be part of a social circle or social event
