Meet the people who you would never guess would self-harm.

One is a practicing mental health worker, who works with young people by day but has her own private struggles. One is a 15 year old girl who started cutting herself a few times a week after having problems in her group of friends at school. And another is a man in his 60s. He doesn’t self-harm anymore but still occasionally feels the urge.

Some experts think there is a trend of people with no diagnosed psychological or mental health issues resorting to self-harming.

Jenny Brockie asks why people do it and how they broke the cycle.
