Welcome to the ISH Study

We are conducting a research study to understand the experiences of youth who are currently engaging in self-harm or have a history of self-harm. We also want to understand the effects of brief skills training on managing thoughts and feelings related to self-harm.

To participate in the study:

(1) Youth must be in 6th grade through 12th grade.
Young adults must be between 18 and 24 years old.


(2) Participants must have engaged in 3 or more incidents of self-harm in the last year

OR must have engaged in 5 or more incidents of self-harm in their lifetime.

(3) Youth under 18 years old must be accompanied by a consenting parent or legal guardian.

Study appointments will last no more than 3 hours.
Participants will be compensated $50 for their time!
Parents/guardians will be compensated $20 for their time!

Compensation will be provided in the form of Amazon.com or Smith's gift cards.

We are grateful for the youth and parents/guardians participating in this study!

We hope this research will help other youth struggling with self-harm.
