Self Injury Awareness Day
It is celebrated globally on 1 March. Its purpose behind the celebrating the day is to remove the stigma attached to self-injury and to encourage parents, family members, educators, and healthcare professionals to recognise signs of self-harm. On Self-Injury Awareness Day, people can share their self-harm stories, which can help them find a community of people who understand and can help them overcome it. Mental health organizations also make extra efforts to raise awareness about self-harm and self-injury, with some even offering free therapy sessions on the day.
