1 March is Self-Injury/Harm Awareness Day (SIAD).
Many people are struggling due to the impact of COVID-19 on our lives. With this in mind, raising awareness about self-injury has never been so important.
Awareness leads to understanding and empathy, banishing judgement and fear. It reduces the number of people who feel alone and suffer in silence.
Raising awareness is about educating people who do not injure themselves and reaching out to people who do.
