The Popularization of Self Harm: A Multi-Generational Conversation

Maeve Smith will discuss how Generation Z has normalized and perpetuated self-harm through social media. Smith’s TEDx Talk will begin by sharing her personal experience with the topic, when she watched as a close friend was influenced by this culture. Smith will then consider how social media and the internet impact and exacerbate this problem, and how this toxic culture is expanding its branches into every corner of the world through the internet.
