#3 All people who self-injure have “Borderline Personality Disorder.”
People who engage in repetitive self-injury have reported being diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorder,
anorexia, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or anxiety and panic disorders.
However, many who self-injure may not have any diagnosable disorder at all; a recent study by Cornell found that almost half of college students with current self-injurious behavior show no other identifiable mental illness.
