Are teens are self harming more?

August 08, 2013 at 11:04 AM

The University of Auckland Youth 12 Overview is now available and compares well in some respects with its predecessor the Youth 07 Overview. Its questionnaire asked student respondents about theiralcohol, binge drinking and tobacco use, drug use and sexual activity as well as self harm, amongst other select indicators.

The noted improvements in the overview are accreditted to the positive impacts of public health messages. The worst trend is in self harming on the rise.

However, some students critique these findings in this news article and say that partying boozing and drugs were fairly common in this interview.
