​Question from terminologists:

We have received an inquiry from one of our members regarding the semantic difference between
248062006 | Self-injurious behavior (finding) | and 1157096002 |Self destructive behavior (finding)| (which was just added in 2021).  Going through the literature, these are sometimes conflated and sometimes treated as separate.  Can the MBH group give some insight?  It appears that ICD and DSM do not use the notion of 1157096002 |Self destructive behavior (finding)|
