Video Description

"Nonsuicidal self-injury actually falls under “conditions for further study” within the DSM. Therefore, it’s not an actual diagnosis yet, but is something that they hope more scientists will study so that they can add it in. I know that many of you were excited that it was finally it’s own diagnosis and not just a symptom of Borderline Personality Disorder, but we are getting there! This is actually good news because it tells us that they are finally realizing what we already knew; that self-harm behavior happens without a BPD diagnosis. What I would love to hear from you is whether or not you think their proposed criteria is correct or if there are other things that you think need to be added or changed. Since this is something they are just now talking about, I think it’s great to discuss as a community.

So please share, and let’s hope that when the next DSM comes out, they add this in as a proper diagnosis. xox
