The Laboratory for Clinical and Developmental Research at Harvard University is seeking participants for a study aimed at understanding self-injury and social media use.

Participation does not require you to visit the lab. Plus, all participants will receive a $25.00 Amazon gift card for completing the study.

Participation involves completing a brief online survey, permission to be followed on Twitter for 1 month, and a brief email follow-up at the end of the 1 month.

The new Pinterest blog for is selfinjurynet. It’s still in the beginning stages so follow us so we can see what you’re posting and repin if you pin content relevant to the site (self-harm, depression, mental health issues in general, anti-bullying, etc. or creative expression based on those subjects).

We also have a Twitter for new content on @sinetcontent, so follow us if you’re interested in seeing new content that is posted. 

Some fixes:

  • Your displayed username & URL for your blog should be your chosen username if you’ve signed up through Twitter, Facebook, Google, or Tumblr and not the name you use on any of those.
  • If you’re an anonymous user and you vote on content it should now display, ‘Thank you for voting!’ once your vote has gone through instead of just saying, ‘None.’ 
  • Votes on polls should now be included in the Activity feed.

If you’re interested in the mobile app go to the Android or Apple marketplaces, download the Cometchat app for free, and put in, your username, and your password when you start the app. You should be able to login to chat and be notified when somebody is chatting with you.
