Location: Liverpool
Campaign: To provide support to those who self-harm

Having been bullied in the past, I know what it’s like to feel low and alone.

 

I began to self-harm as a way to cope with the emotional pain I was experiencing.

 

Thanks to the help of my family and friends, I'm much better now, but I know people who’ve gone through similar experiences.

 

Hoping to help others like me find the support they need, I’ve helped to create a Fixers film which shows how speaking about your problems can actually help.

 

Hopefully young people will see it and understand they’re not alone.

 

A special thank you to Lauren Culshaw ​for helping for me with my Fix.
