Self Injury Awareness Day

Every year on March 1, Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) is held to raise awareness of intentional self-injury behaviours like “cutting” and other forms of self-harm and to connect people in need with resources.

The deliberate infliction of bodily harm on oneself is known as self-harm and is also referred to as “cutting.” Skin carving, self-medication, excessive scratching, self-burning, punching or hitting walls to cause pain, and other self-injury behaviours are frequently indicators of severe mental distress.

According to Edu World, Self-Injury Awareness Day is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the dangers of this all-too-common behaviour. Despite the fact that self-injury is frequently diagnosed without suicidal ideation, there is a strong link between this risky behaviour and suicide.
