Teenage victims 'more likely to self-harm'

Teenage victims 'more likely to self-harm' Teenagers who are victims of neglect, bullying, crime, family violence and sexual exploitation are more likely to self-harm and have suicidal thoughts, a study from King's College London finds.

The report says the picture is complex, with other pre-existing vulnerabilities like low self-esteem or an unsupportive home also playing a part. But it says schemes to stop adolescents becoming victims may lower the risks. BBC News
