"Healing the Hurt Within" by Jan Sutton - a factual book with accounts from people who self harm under different circumstances. It also has research based facts. She has a website too.

"Cutting It Out" by Carolyn Smith. I found this story based on real life experience of sh really easy to read and heartfelt. It is emotive, quirky and endearing and you really empathise for the main character and her battle with sh.

I found 'bloodletting' by Victoria Leatham really interesting, and she told her own story really well. I also liked the tenth circle, as it was a great book.

'A million little pieces' by James Frey
This book isn't about SH, it's about drug abuse. But the message that it gave to me was about fighting and not giving up, and that's why I think it is very good.

'Overcoming Anxiety' by Helen Kennerley

I was prescribed this by the CMHT. It is very informative and gives CBT techniques for you to try and apply. I've found it to be very beneficial to me and helped me make some positive steps.

I love 'The Pact' by Jodi Picoult, well infact I love all her books, but this one I found I could relate to abit more, and you get to see issues like suicide viewed from a different perspective, and that made me kind of happy, & gave me hope  :)

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

I read this book in secondary school and had to but three copies myself because I read it that much. It's one girl's experience as she deals with a life changing event. I felt so connected with the character and gripped by the style of writing.

'The stranger in the mirror' by marlene steineberg. A very good book on dissociative disorders, it's very informative and helped me to understand what i was going through.
