Synopsis

Self-harm is spiralling in Britain. It is estimated that two teenagers in every classroom have been driven by depression or anxiety to hurt themselves. In this moving and sometimes disturbing film, actress and writer Meera Syal meets young people who self-harm to find out why they do it, and how parents like herself can avoid it happening to their own children.
