Thursday 22nd May 2014

This is the emotional call that made Julia Hartley-Brewer cry live on-air.

Warning: Some people may find the details of the call upsetting.


Julia was discussing new figures out today, suggesting the number of teenagers in England who have self-harmed has tripled in the last decade.

She explained she had experienced suicidal thoughts, after her brother became unwell and she was getting bullied at school.
