Self-injury with or without the intent of ending one’s life has been reported frequently in literature. The act of self-injury has been referred to by a plethora of terms like para suicide, suicidal attempt, deliberate selfharm, deliberate self-injury. These terms have been used interchangeably, possibly clubbing together different disorders.
