Jenny* (18) (NAME CHANGED) dealt with exam pressures by cutting herself, then she found out six of her classmates were doing the same thing. She says:
"I'd been really stressed with school but when I didn't get the results I hoped for in a mock exam, it put me over the edge.
"I was really, really upset and I cut myself. I felt like I was hurting on the inside so I should be hurt on the outside.
"I didn't really want to talk to teachers about how I was feeling. I thought it would sound silly saying that I was under a lot of stress.
"My guidance counsellor was dealing with another friend who was properly suicidal so I felt she had enough on her plate and I just didn't want to tell my mum, I felt it would be too awkward.
"One night a friend noticed the cuts on my arm and asked if I was okay. She asked me if I was self-harming and I said yes, then she said 'no way! I do that too!'
"I couldn't believe it, but it turned out there were seven of us in my class doing the same thing.
"In a way it felt good to know I wasn't the only one, but I also wondered why they hadn't told me.
"I couldn't believe all of us had felt under pressure and this was how we were all coping with it.
"When I tried to stop I would only last a week but then earlier this year, I think it was National Self Harm Awareness Day, Eoghan McDermott from The Voice tweeted about self-harm and I don't know why but it just clicked in my head that I needed to stop.
"Looking back I wish my friends and I had just told each other we all felt under pressure and talked through it together."
