Today, thousands of young people, under-confident and often scared, are seeking release from their personal struggles in ways many adults would prefer not to contemplate and, sadly, ignore. You probably have friends who cut, friends who are bulimic and you know self-injury is a serious problem in teen culture today. Self-injury is taking teen culture by storm and its impact is evident in movies, music lyrics and countless music videos. This talk opens up discussion, raises awareness and shows a way out of the darkness.
I found this talk very helpful as one who has Self Injured and as one who wants to help youth who are also hurting. I think this is something all Pastors, Youth Workers, and parents alike should hear.
Brett is a gifted and dynamic speaker. His direct yet sensitive approach to discussing self-injury and suicide contributes tremendously in eliminating stigma to mental health issues. Brett provides a practical approach on how to begin the process of healing. He provides resources and encourages connectedness while sending messages of hope to those who are hurting. Every youth, adult, parent and educator would benefit from attending a session with Brett Ullman.

We all thought it was an excellent presentation that clearly outlined the facts and brought an important issue into the light. It made it a lot easier to discuss in class as it can sometimes be a sensitive issue to initiate and the discussions that went on in each class were excellent. Students shared their own thoughts/experiences after hearing what you had to say, which was so great as they probably wouldn't have done that otherwise.
