Name: Leia McMahon
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Lowestoft, Suffolk
Campaign: To encourage young people who self-harm to seek help

Having self-harmed in the past, I know how isolating it can be.


I tried to keep it a secret, but my family found out.

Thankfully, I did get help after that and I’m now in a position to use my experiences to support others.


With Fixers, I’m showing young people, who are facing similar struggles, that self-harm is never the answer. I want to encourage them to talk about their feelings.


I hope more individuals will realise that there is help available and that they’re not alone.

Ted Blowers has helped me with this Fix.
