Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is the intentional destruction of body parts without any suicidal intent. This paper is a summary of researches on adolescent NSSI, including definition, status quo, explanatory models, school-based prevention and intervention strategies. NSSI appears earlier and shows a higher rate in adolescents than other ages. There have been many explanatory models, among which the functional approach and the five-dimension model have been the greatest focuses of attention. Dealing with NSSI in school settings requires universal and specific prevention strategies with negative emotions/thoughts as well as intervention strategies with the participation of all school staff members. The cognitive behaviour therapy is considered the most effective one.
