This girl bravely shared her story of abuse and self-harm to help others

A young woman's simple but startling video has gone viral this week, after she bravely chose to share her story of abuse, bullying and self-harm with the world.

Anne Gruenwald was abused by her mother's boyfriend from the age of seven. What followed was years of depression and self-harm as Anna tried to come to terms with what she had gone through at such a young age.

Now in her teens, Anna has told her story to the world, to show others that they are not alone. 

What a brave young woman.
