Location: Tonbridge, Kent
Campaign: To highlight the signs someone may be feeling suicidal.

I felt so low that I contemplated suicide when I was doing my GCSEs.

 

Picked on at school, the bullying confirmed all the negative thoughts that I had about myself.  I believed  I was stupid, ugly and worthless.

 

While I came through it, there are other young people who end up taking their own lives.

 

Often their friends may have had no idea that they were feeling so desperate.

 

I have made a film with Fixers to encourage young people to talk to their friends to check they’re ok and to look out for the warning signs in case people may be feeling suicidal.

 

The following people helped me with my Fix:

 

John Palourti

Benedict Doggwiter

Oliver Merton

Max Persad
