Suicide and Self-harm

Self-harm is also commonly known as self-injurious Behaviour (SIB), self-mutilation, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), parasuicide, deliberate self-harm (DSH), self-abuse, and self-inflicted violence. As one would expect, having multiple terms for self-harm creates misunderstanding and confusion both in academic research and in clinical settings. Self-harm and suicide attempts can also seem very similar. Sometimes this can result in incorrect treatment assessments. Some researchers classify all forms of self-injury on a suicidal continuum (preceding suicidal ideation), regardless of the victim’s intent. Others emphasize the marked differences between self-harm and attempted suicide and believe they should be separate areas.
