A consultation workshop aimed at understanding the potential impacts of Ask Me How I Am, a film about self-harm made by young people

In this 90-minute online workshop you will watch the film Ask Me How I Am, an animated short film about self- harm co-created by local young people with lived experience of self-harm, film company Boundary Pictures and Fullscope.

Independent consultant Juliet Snell from Cambridge-based consultancy Taproot will guide you through some questions which will explore the film in more depth.

You will be asked to share your responses to the film within a group environment. However, you will not be asked to share anything personal to you. The meeting may be recorded/transcribed for later analysis, but will be anonymised to remove any identifying information.

If you have any questions about how we will use your information, please contact [email protected]


Fullscope have been commissioned by NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to work with Public Health to understand the issues around self-harm for children and young people locally.

This work has involved to date:

  1. Data and research to understand the local picture
  2. The co-creation of a film about self-harm, made with young people with lived experience: Ask Me How I Am.
  3. The development and delivery of workshops for local professionals working with young people.

Ask Me How I Am is currently available only to professionals and within a workshop environment. We are keen to explore opportunities for a wider audience to access the film and/or participate in workshops.
