I was invited to speak about my Fixers campaign on ITV Daybreak with Matt Barbet and Ranvir Singh on 13 June 2013. Take a look at my photo with the presenters below.
Following my appearance on Daybreak, Shropshire College have decided to print my posters and distribute them to all the schools, colleges and health teams in the area.
After seeing the segment, the team at Nova Training in Hereford have also requested to have copies of my posters, which they will display in their building. Nova Training provides training to young people in the town and they hold open days with police, support workers, schools, and parents.
Fellow Fixer Imogen Smith and I were featured in an extended piece about young women who self-harm in The Mirror, published shortly after Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, was rumored to have self-harmed. Click the image below to expand the article or click to read it here.

My poster series was unveiled at Leicester’s West End Gallery on 22nd February and can now be viewed by the public.
About 20 people, including teachers, nurses, family and friends, attended the unveiling of the posters and took part in the dialogue.
Here is some of the feedback from people who attended:
'I found the posters eye-catching yet simple. It's a good way to get people talking about the issues.'
'Found the posters very effective, and can see them being used in educational establishments: schools and colleges.'
'The posters are shocking and powerful: the written messages are thought provoking.
'Thought the posters were hard-hitting and showed a variety of different people in different situations. They make the reader question their own answers.'
I was interviewed on BBC Radio Leicester on 18th February to talk about my self-harm awareness project.
My Fixers self-harm awareness campaign also was featured in the Lester Mercury and the Hinckley Times this month.
