Hey I gathered some opinions. Hope they help.

Yes deprioritised
- e.g smoking - know they are in the wrong, alternative "healthier" methods to use, costs NHS millions per year
- e.g. alcohol abuse - know it's bad, causes cirrhosis (liver damage) - needs a liver transplant, costs NHS millions per year
- e.g. drug abuse - depends, if teens then they need rehabilitation but should be informed. If they are informed prior to abuse then obvs get treatment but perhaps after other patients

Other factors to consider: e.g if someone isn't aware of the effects (they should still not be reckless), if its caused by a genetic factor e.g mental illness, etc.

Sorry its long and also sorry for any typos - am not good at typing !! lol.

thank you! and yes I agree I have been looking at different types of self-inflicted illnesses however I have to be careful because there is another girl doing it so I, therefore, cannot overlap with it - annoying but I have to avoid it.


do you have any source? or ideas of where I can find sources?

hey sorry i dont really have any sources perhaps they may be something on the NHS website? I have done HPQ and I know that part of primary research is giving surveys and stuff - you could do that for urs? (if its the same method for both HPQ and EPQ). sorry I couldn't help more. hope it goes well
