Thank you for this article. I am an author, worshop teacher, and speaker who is currently writing a parents' guide to self-injury for a Christian publisher. As one who has struggled with self-injury it disturbs me to see sites and movies that glamourize such a painful issue. I found the information in this article extremely useful.

God Bless,

Jeanette Hanscome
