We sent our daughter to Avery's House for self harm treatment and we can't say enough good things about the program. The major difference is that they are not a clinic or a treatment facility, it's a home. quote-icon

About 17% of teens admit to self-harming at least once in their lifetime

Self-harm is more prevalent in teens than any other population. Also known as nonsuicidal self-injury, it can be difficult to stop self-harming. If your teen is self-harming, don’t wait to reach out. We can help.

Self-harm in teens

Teenage self-harming isn’t always easy to detect. Due to shame or stigma, adolescents tend to learn how to hide self-harm quickly. Don’t ignore the warning signs if your child is harming themselves. If you’re uncomfortable or uncertain about how to speak to your child, you’re not alone! Call us today and see how Avery’s House can help.

Why do teens self-harm?

Self-harm is not a mental health disorder, but a serious symptom of other psychological conditions. It’s not about suicide, rather a search to relieve the build-up of stress and emotional pressure. Risk factors include:

  • Mental health conditions like anxiety or depression
  • Having family or friends who harm themselves
  • Trauma or ongoing stress
  • Difficult relationships with family and friends Eating disorders
  • Experiencing bullying, homophobia or racism
