Self Harm Awareness Day takes place around the world on the 1st March every year. In 2023, Carlisle Eden Mind join other organisations from across the UK to raise awareness and dispel myths around this often misunderstood issue.
Self Harm Awareness Day offers an opportunity to publicise this important issue and the tireless work undertaken by so many organisations to tackle it. By raising awareness of self harm and the pain it causes to so many, together we can challenge the stigma surrounding the issue and save lives.
A parent and carers guide to coping with self-harm is a free download that was developed with the aim of supporting parents, carers and other family members that are worried about a young person that may be self-harming. It includes information on self-harm, the causes and how to support a young person and yourself when facing this problem and what support is available.
