Who’s helping Alex?

This short film was created by young people at 42nd Street as part of the Alex project. This project was set up to enable young people who have experience of self-harm or support someone who does to have a voice and speak out about self-harm. This film explores both the unhelpful things often said to young people who use self-harm as a coping strategy and identifies ways in which parents, friends, carers and professionals can begin to better support young people.
