The Semicolon Movement: Your Story Continues

Puntkomma

The semicolon is a punctuation mark that indicates there is more that is yet to unfold.  Why are photos of people with semicolon tattoos popping up on social media?  It is part of a movement to inspire individuals struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts or loss, addiction and self-injury to let the rest of their story unfold.  Project Semicolon was started as a faith-based movement by Amy Bleuel in 2013.  Bleuel’s father died by suicide, and she has struggled with depression and past suicide attempts.  As the movement grew, instead of just drawing a semicolon on their wrist, people began getting the ink to permanently show their support.  It is a great reminder that we can write our own story.

Recovery is possible, and help is available.  At Brookhaven Hospital, we have a faith-based treatment option in our Renewal program.   If you or someone you love is dealing with depression or the disease of addiction, call us today, 888-298-HOPE (4673).
