At what age is self-mutilation in teens the highest?

There isn't any specific age. Some Teens just have urge to mutilate when they can't express their feelings of loneliness, being inferior and unwanted. Through self-mutilation, they release their stress and anger. Yes, they may know it isn't the right thing to do. But seriously when things get to some point of time and nobody stands by them, they self-mutilate.
