Self-Harm: It’s hard to keep a secret that’s written all over your body
Presented by:
Liz Seelow, LPC, LMHC, CET, CCTP
Length:
30 or 60 minutes

In the U.S., it's estimated that one in every 200 girls between 13 and 19 years old, or one-half of one percent, cut themselves regularly. Those who cut comprise about 70 percent of teen girls who self-injure. This is only one aspect of self-harm, meaning there are other ways to self-harm creating a larger percentage of teens (girls and boys) who self-harm on a regular basis. Learn about the signs and symptoms of self-harm behavior in teenagers, the reasons behind self-harming, and how to help those who are struggling with this.

This presentation is suitable for a high school health class.
