Schools 'struggling to cope' with students self-harming
Two of the UK's largest teaching unions say schools are struggling to deal with the rising numbers of students who are self-harming.
It is as new NHS figures obtained by the BBC show there has been a 20% increase in the number of hospital admissions of 10 to 19-year-olds deliberately hurting themselves across England, Wales and Northern Ireland
These latest figures show almost 29,000 young people were treated for self-inflicted injuries in just one year.
