Today is Self-Injury Awareness Day, and for over 20 years, this day has aimed to bring awareness to self-injury and self-harm.

Raising awareness about this issue is imperative as it helps educate people who are unfamiliar with it, as well as reaching out to people who do harm themselves to offer support and resources.

Join us in recognizing Self-Injury Awareness Day on Twitter using the hashtag #SIAD. To find out how to contribute more, see the tips below to make a larger impact.

How can you do your part? 

  • Check on a friend who might be struggling and offer your support.
  • Wear an orange ribbon in solidarity to show that you’re a safe person to speak with.
  • Seek the help of a professional to help gain control without self-harm.
