Snagged is a short film designed to raise awareness among young people, teachers and parents about online grooming, county lines and exploitation.
“Absolutely stunning.” - Seona Baker, Education Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Walsall Council
"Through its approach and emphasis on co-production, this EasySRE resource demonstrates good practice in RSE and will be used within our Walsall secondary schools and available to Walsall parents to support teachers and parents in understanding the issues around grooming and in being able to raise the issue with the young people they are in contact with. The format means that the message is given in an easily accessible but non-victim blaming manner enabling dialogue and effective learning." - Esther Higdon, Senior Programme Development & Commissioning Manager, Public Health Department, Walsall Council
The Notes to Self film and it's supporting resources seek to challenge the myths and misinformation that surround mental health and well-being. The film also stresses the importance of early intervention by professionals when young people are having difficulties, and to this end contains several scenarios in which we see young people talking to well-being professionals. The film poses the questions: When do the everyday stresses and ups and downs of teenage behaviour become a mental health issue? How do you keep yourself mentally well? How can you help a friend in need?
Notes to Self aims to equip young people with strategies to help keep themselves emotionally healthy, to guide them on seeking help and supporting others, and to encourage them to challenge stigma around mental health issues.
Prompted by statistics showing that pregnant teenage girls or those with babies are more likely to experience domestic abuse, these films use drama and interviews to explore this issue and what constitutes healthy or non-healthy relationships. Recommended for KS4, KS5 and youth groups. NB: Equally of use to young people who are not parents.
