Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) is defined as the deliberate, self-inflicted damage of body tissue without suicidal intent and for purposes not socially or culturally sanctioned. School nurses are often a first point of contact for young people experiencing mental health challenges, and yet they often report they lack knowledge and training to provide care for persons who engage in NSSI. In the second of two parts, this article offers a strategy for brief assessment of NSSI, as well as reflection on two case studies and how to offer support, ongoing care, and referral for treatment to youth who engage in self-injury.
