Why do people self-injure and what support do they need in their journey to recovery?
In this episode, released on international Self-Injury Awareness Day, Amelia and returning host, Jessica Morrison, are joined by Professor Penelope Hasking, the President of the International Society for the Study of Self-Injury. The three debunk misconceptions about self-injury and explore why it’s important to recognise that recovery isn’t a linear process.
