Charlottle Lipfriend

After experiencing mental illness from a very young age, Charlotte decided to join the fight to stop stigma, and raise awareness of issues such as self-harm among young people.

Charlotte created a striking and moving video to get people talking called Hashtag Smile. Her video encourages young people to speak out about self harm, and to know that they are not alone.

Charlotte kindly shared her experiences with us.
