Cutting is an attempt to interrupt strong emotions and pressures that seem impossible to tolerate. It can be related to broader emotional issues that need attention. Most of the time, cutting is not a suicide attempt. Cutting affects many teens and preteens - even beyond those who self-injure.

Cutting among teenagers is on the rise. Under great stress from teachers, peers, and parents to excel, it is one way that they try to get relief. Here is one familys story.
