Objective: Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) is recognized worldwide as a public health concern among adolescents. Recent studies have shown a relationship between Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (SCT) and a range of difficulties linked to NSSI, including a host of psychiatric disorders and behavioral problems, though no study to date has examined the relationship between SCT and NSSI or NSSI functions among adolescents. In this study, our aim was to evaluate SCT symptoms and any connection to NSSI functions, while addressing other psychiatric symptoms and problems specifically associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among adolescents.
