Campaign: Raising awareness about self-harm

My group of Fixers and I feel that self-harm isn’t a topic which many people like to talk about.

 

A friend of mine self-harmed and it broke my heart to see her in that way.

 

I’d notice the scars on her arms and wonder how it ever got so bad.

 

I think others like her need someone to tell them everything will be alright and to know help is out there.

 

With the help of Fixers, my team and I have created a radio advertisement aimed at young teenagers addressing this issue.

 

We want to show them that self-harming isn’t the answer and if you’re feeling low you should talk to someone.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

'What an excellent campaign - the greatest respect to Chelsea and company.'

 

Gemma, University of Chester

'Well done Chelsea, so proud of you. As I work with teenagers who self harm, I thought the advert was really fantastic. It was explained well about how the young people actually feel and how they use it as a coping mechanism.'

'Excellent Chelsea, well done.'

'This was so sad - it had me in tears.'
