Quote Of The Day - 12th July 2014

"With an increase in stress and anxiety in teens, some are choosing to cope with the tension by a form of self-harm called cutting. Cutting is a self-injurious behavior where a student uses a sharp object to inflict physical pain to sometimes compensate for the emotional pain experienced. Once thought to be an attempt at suicide, a copy-cat strategy, or a way to seek attention, professionals are now indicating it is not necessarily any of these, but a coping mechanism that many teens are now choosing to release anxiety." - Kristina Larsen, Self Injury In Teenagers: A Research Paper
