To Write Love on Her Arms is just one of the many organizations in the US that helps young people who are struggling with problems like self-injury, depression and suicide. Check out what they're all about.

To Write Love on Her Arms - A Ray of Hope

To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is a non-profit organization that helps people who are battling self-infury, suicide, depression and drug addiction. Based in Orlando, Florida, TWLOHA isn't made up of a team of trained professionals, but a small group of people who are committed to helping people with their struggles, to connect them to treatment centers and support groups, and to encourage and support them in their recovery process.

To Write Love on Her Arms - The Power of Music

TWLOHA was founded by Jamie Tworkowski to help his friend who was struggling with self-injury, depression and addiction. When she was rejected from a drug treatment center, Tworkowski created a MySpace page and started selling T-shirts to help pay for her treatment. Musicians and bands quickly picked up the message and started showing their support, and within a year, TWLOHA had raised $100,000! TWLOHA gets most of its exposure from bands, including the Plain White T's, Gym Class Heroes, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Switchfoot and Panic! at the Disco, who wear their T-shirts while performing. In the spring of 2007, Jamie joined the alternative rock band Anberlin on their seven-week US headlining tour to speak to the audience about TWLOHA's mission before the band took to the stage every night. TWLOHA even had a booth at every stop on the 2007 Vans Warped Tour!

To Write Love on Her Arms - How Can You Help?

Want to get involved with TWLOHA? Here's what you can do - buy a TWLOHA T-shirt from their online store, donate part of your allowance (25 per cent of all proceeds goes to treatment and recovery programs like the National Hopeline Network and S.A.F.E. Alternatives), or join their Street Team and help spread the word about the organization. As well, TWLOHA will be launching an intern program soon, so keep your eyes and ears open for updates!

My parents are sort of strict. I'm eleven but they only let me go to my mates house or up to the park. I'm not allowed ****gram even though 75% of the kids in my class have it nor facebook, twi**er or Tum*lr. I have a google account so I have Google+ but I'm not allowed to like or comment, which sucks. But apart from that their quite lenient.

I tell him to stop and I get grounded some more. my mums always yelling, my brothers (younger) is always blaming stuff on me that I didn't do just to stay out of trouble, and my parents never listen to my side. in fact, my dad says "shut up, boy." can someone help me?
