Cutting Away Pain: Teen Depression and Pain Displacement

This article is about teenage depression and how teenagers of today are coping with their depression. The new fad is self-mutilation in the form of cutting or slashing on the skin of the upper thighs or the upper arms. Teenagers do it because they can’t express themselves in a more positive manner and they’re unable to cope with the stress that they’re experiencing. Kids who are hooked into cutting are subjected to counselling to address the real root of the problem, sometimes prescribed medications to at least improve the depression and lessen urges to cut, or hospitalization for chronic cutters that need to be placed under close observation.
