Self-injury, also called
self-harm, self-abuse, self-damage, and in its most broad and extreme
cases, self-multilation, is the act of purposefully and compulsively damaging
the self, usually the skin. At least 1 % of the population, with a
higher proportion being female, are self-injurers.
This chat room is offered
as a place for Bipolars who self-injure to meet with each other for
friendship and support. Beginning November 28th, scheduled chats
will be held every Friday evening from 7:30pm to 9pm. EST. We hope you will join
us after first reading the Chat Guidelines sections below!
