Do self harm hashtags on social media help or harm those at risk? This article addresses this question and difficult topic. A good read!

“The road to recovery for anyone who self-injures can be hard. Since the behavior usually speaks to a larger mental health issue, it’s important for those struggling to address the root of the problem and find a way to cope without injury.” – Taryn Hillin

And, to say I was pleased with the last paragraph of the article would be an understatement.
