Youth who identify as goth may be more at risk for depression, self-harm

August 27, 2015

Analysis of a longitudinal, community-based cohort indicated more young people who identified with goth subculture met criteria for clinical depression and self-harm than those who did not identify with the subculture.

“Previous research has suggested that deliberate self-harm is associated with contemporary goth subculture in young people; however, whether this association is confounded by characteristics of young people, their families, and their circumstances is unclear,” Lucy Bowes, PhD, of Oxford University, and colleagues wrote.
