Self-Injury Awareness Day is March st of every year! Each year, the 1st of March is designated as Self Injury-Awareness Day (SIAD). It is an international event that is recognised around the world.

Self-injury Awareness Day (SIAD) (also known as Self-Harm Awareness Day) is a grassroots annual global awareness event/campaign on March 1, where on this day, and in the weeks leading up to it, some people choose to be more open about their own self-harm and awareness organizations such as Launching Point make special efforts to raise awareness about self-harm and self-injury. Some people wear an orange awareness ribbons, write "LOVE" on their arms, draw a butterfly on their wrists in awareness of "the Butterfly Project"  and even wear beaded bracelets to encourage awareness of self-harm. The goal of the people who observe Self-Injury Awareness Day is to break down the common stereotypes surrounding self-harm and to educate medical professionals about it.

We are always "out and about" and every year in the weeks prior to March 1st and on March 1st we increase our visibility and will post on our calendar/schedule where we will be.
