Channel 4’s documentary Kids on the Edge, screened over the last couple of weeks, is the result. For us it has captured, with great sensitivity, the challenges faced by young people and their families and which our services are working through on a daily basis.

Only by better understanding, both intellectually and emotionally, the level of distress which can drive a young person to self-harm or to think of taking their own life can we begin to move forward.
