Adolescents' Intentional Self-Mutilation
Laskite, A.; Laskene, S.
Russian Education and Society, v53 n9 p83-88 Sep 2011
In Lithuania, suicide is among the top three causes of death; between twenty and thirty-three school-age children take their own lives every year, and the overwhelming majority of adolescents do not seek help in connection with situations that prompt them to engage in self-mutilation. Research indicates adolescents think that if more attention is paid to their social and psychological state, the problem of self-mutilation can be confronted more successfully.
