Young Minds research report on self harm

There has been a growing concern around the number of young people self-harming. Figures show that:-

• 1 in 12 young people self-harm.
• Last year 38,000 young people were admitted to hospital because of their injuries.
• Inpatient admissions due to young people self-harming increased by 68 per cent in the last 10 years.

These figures are just the tip of the iceberg as many young people who self-
harm do not come to the attention of services.
