Self-harm is spiralling in Britain. It is estimated that two teenagers in every classroom have been driven by depression or anxiety to hurt themselves.

Archie Williams is a 17- year old media geek who has suddenly found himself the most talked-about kid in school. He has announced that he's going to kill himself - on camera - for a class project. His classmates, parents, Sierra - the most beautiful girl in school, and a "Shady Bunch" of shrinks, doctors, pill-pushers, and counselors descend on Archie. Some are hoping to save him, some was to imitate him, and some want to push him over the brink. Archie films every moment of his high school experience, hiding nothing from his audience: realities of life, death, violence, sex, drugs, and the intense media overload and hypocrisy that bombard all teenagers.
*SI doesnt play a huge part in this movie, but the topic and consequences of suicide are. The movie starts off a little... strange, but I recommend this movie for anyone, especially teenagers.*
Based on the book, "Augusta, Gone" written by Martha Tod Dudman. This movie was a Lifetime Movie and was about a girl who experimented with drugs, drinking, and other activites and a mother's struggle to save her daughter. It explicitly shows a scene of cutting while the character Augusta is at a camp for "problem" teens.
"Martha is a businesswoman and divorced mother of two children - Augusta and Jack. However, when docile Augusta becomes a teenager, feelings of anger and self-hate cause her personality to undergo a scary transformation, and Martha realizes that this is not just typical teen angst. Augusta begins doing drugs, drinking, and ends up on the streets. Her concerned mother and father reach out to an educational consultant, who advises them to send Augusta to a strict wilderness camp for troubled teens. However, even the institution's experienced and tough administrators find Augusta a difficulty to keep under control. Martha comes to realize that there is no answer to her daughter's behavior."

A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan.
The lead character has a history of self-injurious behavior and there are depictions of self-injury throughout the film, especially as she goes deeper into psychosis.
A dramatized biography of Brandon Teena staring Hilary Swank as Teena. There's one scene in which Brandon Teena is sitting around a camp fire with the guys. If I remember correctly - it's been 10 years - the guys briefly compare SI scars. There's no actual SI in the film. Just images of scars that are supposed to be the result of SI.
Homosexual and transgender persecution and graphic violence in this film. It also has a rape scene. Careful if that triggers or offends you.
