‘Shedding’ is a short film created to share the stories of three people from across the UK living with Alopecia Areata; a condition causing loss of hair. Alopecia Areata can be an extremely challenging condition to deal with. It often presents itself with little or no warning and currently there is no known cure. Alopecia affects people of all ages, race and gender and can have a detrimental effect on self-esteem and confidence. The film was designed to bring greater awareness of the condition to the general public and to highlight the psychological impact that living with a visible condition can have on individuals. Those featured in the film are individuals affected by alopecia who have found managing their condition much easier since being in touch with the charity, Alopecia UK.
Alopecia UK is a small national charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia through aims of Support, Awareness and Research. The charity has a network of local support groups across the UK, runs national events bringing together large numbers of people with alopecia and has a website packed full of information and useful resources.
