Self-injury in Australia: a community survey.
Martin, G.~~Swannell, S.~~et al.
Objective: To understand self-injury and its correlates in the Australian population. Conclusion: The prevalence of self-injury in Australia in the 4 weeks before the survey was substantial and self-injury may begin at older ages than previously reported. Self-injurers are more likely to have mental health problems and are at higher risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviour than non-self-injurers, and many self-injurers do not seek help.
