Part 01: Introduction

Self-injury is a phenomenon that impacts up to 15% of today’s students, often beginning around the ages of 13 to 15, but sometimes starting as early as elementary school.* With numbers like these, it is likely that most educators will encounter a minimum of one case during their careers. This website has been developed as a resource for educators. It provides information regarding how to recognize, understand, and respond to self-injury.
