Self-Injury Awareness Day is an international event held on March 1st every year which aims to raise awareness and understanding about self-injury, educate people who do not self-injure and reach out and support people who do.

Technology can play a part in helping teachers to spot students who may be suffering with these kinds of issues. Self-harming is often a condition that sufferers keep a secret, so having technology that can alert teachers if those affected are searching for terms associated with the condition is a major benefit. NetSupport DNA does this and so much more to help schools carry out their safeguarding duties for students, including: keyword monitoring, offering a Report a Concern tool for students, and offering a self-service directory of contacts to external organisations that students can use if they choose.
