Legal Disclaimer:
The sole purpose of this information is to make the public aware of the possible behaviors
and/or complications that may be presented by an individual that has been abused or assaulted.
Any, all, or none of these behaviors may be presented, but the presence of a particular behavior is NOT the sole method of determining if an individual has been abused or assaulted.

An example of this is some teens, both male and female, self-harm for various reasons.

Definition of Self-harm -
Self-harm is any behavior forethought by the individual that is intended to cause injury in some way to the individual.
This could be as obvious as cutting or burning, or hidden where the individual runs into doorways, or causes them to be in dangerous situations (ie, walking into a dark alley at night, or running across a busy street).

We want to make clear not every individual that self-harms is a victim of abuse or assault. Yet, many (but not all) victims of abuse or assault MAY self-harm in some way.

This page/site is NOT intended or meant to be a substitution for psychological counseling. NOR is it intended to give the reader the basis with which to form a diagnosis.

Only a licensed medical professional has the training, knowledge, and ability so they can provide a diagnosis of any disorder or determine if a true disorder is present.
