SIAD occurs on 1st March every year, and has done so for over 18 years. SIAD is an international event that is recognised across the globe.
Raising awareness about self-injury is incredibly important. Awareness leads to understanding and empathy, banishing judgement and fear, and reducing the number of people who feel alone and suffer in silence.
Raising awareness is about educating people who do not self-injure, and reaching out to people who do.
