'Stranger Things' Star Shannon Purser Survived Self Harm

Stranger Things actress Shannon Purser is bravely opening up about her battle with self harm.

The 19-year-old actress, who plays Barb on the show, took to her Twitter to share a photo of an old reminder of when she used to self harm.

“*TRIGGER WARNING* I haven’t self-harmed in years, but I kept this around, ‘just in case.’ I forgot it was there & now it’s in the trash,” she wrote, along with a photo of an unused razor.

Shannon later added, “Recovery is possible. Please don’t give up on yourself.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with self harm, please call the Self-Injury Hotline at 1-800-366-8288 or visit selfinjury.com.
