Synopsis

Self-harm and Suicide by Jillian Powell

Self-harm and suicide are related although very different from each other. This book looks at the causes and signs of self-harm and considers the physical and psychological effects on young people. It examines why some young people attempt suicide and discusses the effects of suicide on family members. It gives advice on how to seek help to overcome the emotional difficulties that can lead to self-harm or even to suicide, and to tackle the underlying issues that may have given rise to these feelings.
