I’m writing to tell you about an online research study related to the
experiences of young people who physically hurt themselves
(self-injure). Despite the prevalence of self-injury, very little
research has addressed the implications of self-injury for young
people, particularly those who may physically hurt themselves without
others knowing. In order to better help this population, we need to
learn from those who have tried to physically hurt themselves. The
knowledge we gain from your participation will have important
implications for understanding how to help those who physically hurt
themselves.

Individuals between the ages of 13-21 who have physically hurt
themselves are invited to participate.

This online study will take about 30 minutes of your time. You should
have access to a personal computer in a secure, distraction-free
environment.

Your answers to these questions will be completely anonymous and confidential.
