Seeking young people and self-injury (self-harm) stories

The upcoming issue of Visions: BC’s Mental Health and Addictions Journal, an accessible magazine put out by HeretoHelp/BC Partners (and coordinated by CMHA), is looking at Young People: Self-Injury. We'd like to hear from a young person who can talk about their current or recent past self-injury (aka self-harm) behaviour. We’re ideally looking to hear from young people with co-existing conditions (perhaps self-harm + eating disorder, or substance use, or depression etc.), or voices we don’t hear as much from like men, LGBT youth, or ethnocultural or Indigenous youth. Young people is anything between around 12 and 25.

If this sounds like you, get in touch with us today! 

Articles are less than 2 pages long and you'd have at least 3 weeks to write.  And remember you don't have to be a "writer" to write for Visions. Our professional editor will work with you to shape your story. If you can write an email and have a story to tell, you can write for us. You'd even be eligible for a $75 honorarium after publication if we ok you to write.

Interested? Please don't start writing just yet. Contact us at jessieslegacy@familyservices.bc.ca first and share a couple of sentences about your story, and please include your community name, and a phone number as well!
