The 'Silent Epidemic' follows Australia's leading mental health experts on their quest for answers and through the extraordinary personal stories of three young Australians with first-hand experience of self harm. We see for the first time the neurological processes that could help explain this often misunderstood behaviour. But this is also a story of hope, as scientists and advocates from around Australia offer illuminating scientific insight into a behaviour that can also signal a person's craving to survive. Warning: contains some distressing concepts and images of self harm."--Container insert.
