Welcome to another week.

Although we’ve been made aware for some time that children’s mental health has become a serious problem in the UK, the latest self harm figures are shocking and show no signs of decreasing. The NSPCC says almost 19,000 children were admitted to hospital after harming themselves last year – that’s a 14% rise over three years.

Our question this week then, is just this: what do you think is causing the rise in the number of children self harming?
