The Truth about Self-Injury


1. What is the most difficult part about being you right now?
2. How do you deal with life when it gets really difficult?
3. Self-harm in teenagers has risen in recent years.  Why do you think that is?


If someone you really care about is self-harming – with your mentor, figure out a plan to help your friend get professional help.  Figure out an adult that you trust that you and your friend can tell to get help.

If you are harming yourself – tell your mentor and take the steps to get professional help ASAP.  You’re not broken – sometimes we ALL need a little help from other people to make it through the tough parts of life until we get stronger.
