Definition of the noun Self-harm
What does Self-harm mean as a name of something?
- The deliberate non-suicidal injuring of one's body.
- synonym: self-injury
"Self-Harm" is a book by Fiona Gardner.
Self-harm or deliberate self-harm includes self-injury and self-poisoning and is defined as the intentional, direct injuring of body tissue most often done without suicidal intentions. These terms are used in the more recent literature in an attempt to reach a more neutral terminology. The older literature, especially that which predates the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, almost exclusively refers to self-mutilation. The term self-harm is synonymous with the term self-injury.
- also known as Self injury, Deliberate self-harm, DSH, SH, Self injury information
