I’ve seen someone affected by self-harm.
Unfortunately, it’s often mistaken for attention-seeking. But many people see it as the only way to escape their troubles.
I want to help others better understand the reasons why some people self-harm, so that I can challenge the stigma attached to it.
With Fixers, I’ve been working on a wristband and information card that can be handed out to help me achieve this goal.
I hope my campaign will enable those who do self-harm to speak out and seek support, without fear of being judged.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Our Fixers project is supported by Simplyhealth which helps people care for their everyday health through health cash plans, dental plans and independent living solutions.
With over 140-years of history in the healthcare market, the organisation is working in partnership with Fixers to help support young people to have their voices heard on the subject of mental health.
