Self-injury is shrouded in myths and misconceptions, and stigma surrounding the condition can be a very real barrier to coping and recovering. Yet as many as one in five adolescents and young adults are affected by the urge to self-injure.
Self-injury Outreach and Support (SiOS) is a non-profit outreach initiative, led by psychologists at McGill and the University of Guelph who specialize in self-injury. Through their website, SiOS provides a wealth of information and resources for those affected by self-injury and those who want to help.
