Some  Questionnaire Results

 

Thank you to everyone who has participated in this questionnaire.

Here I have taken the results from the questionnaires I have received. These charts show the male/female ratio, the differences in age between those who filled out the questionnaire, and the ways how people self harm. You can see that cutting is by far the most common method. There is also a list of coping mechanisms that people have found useful. (You may find them helpful yourself). Please note that the results displayed on this page have been gathered from the My Friend - My Enemy questionnaire only (the collection of surveys has now been terminated).

There is a lot more information that I have gathered and shall be working on displaying it over the next month or so.
