"How to recognise the signs of SI", where it says "Remember not all people who display these signs, so don’t go accusing every person who wears a long sleeved top of self harming." - and indeed, even if they do self-injure, it may not be productive to immediately accuse them of it.

"Why Cant My Friend Just Stop?" - as far as I am aware, there is no evidence that endorphins are physically addictive. Certainly, they play a part, and explain why it is psychologically addictive. The term "physically addictive" means more than simply a chemical being involved.

But otherwise, there's plenty of good information there.

I have not included everything from there in it, but i have included bits. I know there is more to be included and hopefully version 5 will include some more. recently finding the time to write the guide has been hard and therefore version 4 is only mildly improved from version 3.   Sorry

Yes, if they harm themselves deliberiatly then it is counted as Self Harm.
