Name: Emily Willis
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Cobham, Surrey
Campaign: 16

I have been bullied for most of my life.

 

I have also seen friends bullied and witnessed the negative effects it had on their mental health.

 

I don’t think people realise how serious the consequences of bullying can be.

 

According to a recent survey looking into why young people self-harm, being bullied is indicated as the main reason why they first injure themselves.

 

For my Fixers project, I'm showing how verbal insults can cut deeper than people know.

 

I hope that the campaign highlights that bullying can have detrimental consequences on mental well-being that shouldn't be taken lightly.

 

My hope is to encourage those who are being bullied to seek help and to show bullies the impacts of their actions.

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