“Self-Harm Stops Here”

 

For my Gold Award project, I put together a presentation and a brochure about self-harm
behaviors, how to spot people with these behaviors and where to find help. Did you know that 20 percent of young people in their late teens and early 20s suffer from self-harm? To spread awareness on the subject, I put together a presentation and brochure to inform others. I incorporated videos into my presentation from the Internet and also personal interviews with my friends who are former self-harmers. I included contact information for facilities and hotlines throughout the state that help with the treatment of these behaviors.
