This was an incredibly hard and personal video to make. It's the only video on self-harm I will make. I didn't simply want to make a ""you can do it!"" video like so many others do. I wanted to try and go deeper into how society still treats this issue despite the dramatic increase in depression and its symptoms, as well as methods to help begin a journey into recovery. Self-harming develops into an addiction, and should be treated as such.



As well as the sources of support I mentioned, there are also helplines you can call if you are contemplating suicide or self-harming:

UK: Childline - 0800 1111

US: 1-800-DONT CUT (1-800-366-8288)

Australia: SANE - 1800 18 SANE (7263)

I'm sorry I'm not able to list helplines for every country in the world. Please search '[country] self-harm helpline' if you need someone who can help you.
