Self injury

2 min. 22 sec VXtreme streaming video

Some psychiatrists are calling it a trend of the 90's -- unhappy teen-agers who cut or hurt themselves to feel better. It's called self-mutilation or self-abuse. The behavior is sometimes compared to anorexia or bulemia. As CNN Medical Correspondent Rhonda Rowland reports, parents may be unaware of it and mental health experts are still learning how to treat it.





VXtreme plug-ins for Windows 95, Windows NT, Power Macintosh, and Solaris are currently available. A helper app for Windows 3.11 is also available.
