Abstract :

 Background: Adolescence is a transition period where drastic changes take place and many undergo stress and resort to self-injury for relief. Objectives: To identify the prevalence of self injurious behaviour among adolescents and the associated risk factors and find the association of occurrence of self injurious behaviour with selected baseline variables. Method: Data was collected from 500 participants by administering a questionnaire prepared by the researcher. Result: The findings of the study revealed that about, 80.4% of adolescent participants had injured themselves intentionally at least once in their lifetime. Conclusion: SIB is an activity prominently seen among adolescents but which goes unnoticed. Adolescents have to be educated how to avoid such activities.
