Suicide and Self-harm

Suicide is the voluntary and intentional act of taking of one’s life.  Suicide is commonly carried out through    Firearms (number one method by men and women), Hanging (most commonly done by men) and Drug Overdose (most commonly done by women). Men are four times more likely to die from suicide than women, but women attempt suicide more often during their lifetime. Self-harm is the intentional and deliberate hurting of oneself.  Most commonly it is done by cutting, burning, hitting, picking at the skin, pulling hair, biting, carving. A person who self-harms does not intend to commit suicide, but their self-injurious behavior may result in an accidental death. There are a variety of therapeutic methods used in the treatment of self-harm and suicidal behavior that may include some of the following: Individual therapy, Group therapy, Family therapy, Medication management and therapy.
