Self-harming on the rise in N.B. university students:
A University of New Brunswick study says self-harming among students at the university is on the rise. Psychologist Nancy Buzzell has revealed that 91 of 260 students who sought counselling have admitted to harming themselves. More than five per cent of those students began to hurt themselves after starting university, 17.9 per cent started before education but continued. Buzzell has her clients focus on something else to relieve stress, suggesting re-directing their focus, running, or deep breathing as options.
