"When I started this project there were no studies on sleep disturbances and self-injury. We already know there is a relationship between having sleep problems, such as nightmares and insomnia, and later suicide. I wanted to look at whether these same sleep disturbances also predicted nonsuicidal self-injury like cutting and burning."
