With the transition to college being a stressful and confusing time for students, some turn to self-harm in order to cope. Although not much research has been conducted on the topic, research suggests that approximately 38% of college students reported a history of deliberate self-harm. The purpose of this project is to address the growing concern of self-harm. We will examine the perception of self-harm from those who have engaged in it and from those who have not. An online survey was conducted including questions related to triggers and reasons why someone would engage in self-harm, how students perceive the mental stability of those who engage in it, potential consequences, and healthy alternatives. Results and implications will be discussed.
