Videos are a great way of raising awareness of selective mutism and very easy to share too!

I’ve put together a small selection of videos about SM on this page; some are documentaries, some are home made videos from people who have had SM themselves and others are awareness videos.

So whether you are looking for advice, information or for the knowledge that you are not alone, you should find what you are looking for.

Take a look!

"I recommend you for your hard work in 'spreading the word' about SM. I am encouraged by the rise of interest in the condition over the 21 years of SMIRA's existence, which, I am sure, is due, in no small part, to the efforts of the organisation in raising the profile of this disorder. The more ways that people can learn about it, the better."
