Our Fixers film was screened to students for a week during assemblies at Wallace High School. You can read some of the feedback we received below.
‘People with problems should go and get help, not hurt themselves. It has changed my view as I used to think that people did it for attention but really it’s not. People do it because they have problems. I plan to share it with others so they can get help.'
‘It is a shame all around the world there are people self-harming. The film was very well documented and well put together. It has changed my view as I didn’t really know a lot about it. This film has shown me the reasons why people self-harm.'
‘The film has affected me as it allowed me to see the issues that people have to make them turn to self-harm. It has made me more aware that it happens all the time and that there is help out there for people who are going through it and the friends and family around them on how to deal with the situation. It has also made me more open to the dangers of self-harm and how it can lead to more dangerous things if the people don’t get the help that they need.’
