It’s not clear whether there is a cause-and-effect relationship between being exposed to self-harm behaviors and engaging in them, Lindsey Giller, a clinical psychologist at the Child Mind Institute in New York, told Quartz. However, if someone is vulnerable or had already started harming themselves, seeing similar images can “definitely” be triggering, and even cause them to go back to these behaviors, she added.

“When there are children and adolescents who are having thoughts of self-harm and suicide, we do know there can be a contagion effect,” Dr. Joanna Stern, a program director at the Child Mind Institute, told NBC News.
Stern said it isn't likely that children and adolescents who aren’t thinking about self-harm will be compelled to hurt themselves if exposed to the self-harm content on social media, but it is a risk for young people who are already thinking about it. More at NBC News

The Child Mind Institute had an important discussion on the pressures of adolescence in the era of cell phones, selfies and social media with the creative team behind the hit film, Eighth Grade.
Joining us was Elsie Fisher, who stars as eighth grader Kayla Day; Bo Burnham, the film’s writer and director; and from the Child Mind Institute, Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz and Dr. Jamie Howard. The discussion was moderated by Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee.
Eighth Grade has received critical acclaim and recognition for raising important issues about the risks to self-esteem and developing identity — already fragile in adolescence — in the image-obsessed 21st century. We are excited to use this film’s platform to discuss nurturing confidence and self-expression and helping our children handle the stresses of their wired adolescence. WATCH HERE More
