Campaign: To raise awareness and improve people’s understanding of self-harm

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:

Ashton Wyss
James Clark
James Harrison Micha Coppen
Mollie Rushen Ocean Anderson
Rhiannon Moore Stephan Georgiou
