Self harm is increasing and follows the curve of psychotropic drug use.

It is one of the many side effects of legal and illegal drugs.

If a person self harms, it is imperative to know what illegal or legal drugs he or she uses. Effectively, if someone has the bad idea of prescribing this person a psychotropic medicine when the self harm is the result of a drug addiction or an adverse reaction from taking a legal psychotropic drug, it could lead to a suicide attempt or trigger a serious mental illness.
