Clinical and social outcomes of adolescent self harm: Population based birth cohort study.
Mars, B.~~Heron, J.~~et al.
Adolescents who self harm seem to be vulnerable to a range of adverse outcomes in early adulthood. Risks were generally stronger in those who had self harmed with suicidal intent, but outcomes were also poor among those who had self harmed without suicidal intent. These findings emphasise the need for early identification and treatment of adolescents who self harm.
