Name: Leanne
Age: 22
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: West Midlands
Campaign: Autism and Self Harm

I started self-harming when I was nine-years-old.

 

Cutting myself was a way of coping with everything that was going on – the bullying, abuse and autism.

 

My parents didn’t understand why I self-harmed and there was no support around for them.

 

I want to help families in a similar situation as mine, and let them see self-harm is not something people can stop.

 

I hope by watching my film it will take away the fear people have of self-harm and make it less shocking.

I would like to thank David Shaw for helping me with this fix.
