Broken: An Adolescent's Story

Broken: An Adolescent's Story

Jennifer Gibson

The piece of work I am creating is important because it is highlighting a current topical issue. Many young people deal with mental health issues and I want to bring to light how these people feel when educators and parents find out and how the young person deals with it. It is important for people to understand the pain beyond the self-harm. I am talking from personal experience, so I know I am writing about what I experienced through school and at home. I am not trying to change the world, I am trying to help people understand and cope with a relative or friend who does self-harm.
