“Your Voice Matters: Exploring Self-Recovery from Self-harm”

Ms. Neenu Thomas, a dedicated professional from the Department of Clinical Psychology at LGB Regional Institute of Mental Health, embarked on an enlightening journey of interaction with students at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, GCU, Tezpur on August 31, 2023. This interaction’s main goal was to investigate the area of subjective healing from non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) suffered by young people in Tezpur.
With a commitment to understanding and shedding light on the experiences of young adults who have navigated their path to healing, Neenu Thomas engaged in a thoughtful dialogue with students. She set out to explore the intricate network of feelings, ideas, and difficulties that frequently lead the road to recuperation from non-suicidal self-injury.
NSSI, a complex and multifaceted issue, can have profound effects on individuals’ lives. Neenu Thomas’s interaction with the students was designed to unveil the lived experiences of the young adults, allowing a glimpse into their struggles, triumphs, and the mechanisms they engaged to move toward healing. By fostering an open conversation and a survey, Neenu Thomas encouraged a safe space for students to share their personal narratives and insights, contributing to a greater understanding of this critical topic. The effort not only draws attention to the relevance of raising awareness about mental health issues but also to the value of research and empathic involvement in understanding and resolving mental health issues.
