OISE Research Study on Nonsuicidal Self-Injury

Dr. Chloe Hamza’s CARE lab at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto is currently conducting a study to better understand the impact of nonsuicidal self-injury on people who know someone who self-injures (e.g., peer, romantic partner). Recent research suggests that as many as 1 in 5 post-secondary students engages in nonsuicidal self-injury (self-harm without lethal intent). While there are many resources to help people who self-injure, there is not much support for people who care for and support people who self-injure. This work is important as peers are overwhelmingly the ones who are recipients of self-injury disclosures.

You may participate in this study if you are:  

  • Enrolled as an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto
  • Fluent in English
  • Know someone who self-injures (e.g., friend, romantic partner)
