Reports JSYK, “When you search ‘self harm’ on YouTube, over 5,000 related videos pop up, some of which may trigger cutting, burning, picking or other forms of self-injury. The report says that an estimated 14-24 percent of teens engage in this behavior, which is also known as ‘non-suicidal self-injury’ or NSSI.”
