Self-Injury Awareness Day

Will you see it?  Do you see it?

Self-injury or self-harm is done either by cutting, burning, bruising, scratching and so many other ways, by people who do not have the ability or knowledge on how to deal with issues or feelings that they are going through.  It is extremely difficult for some people to talk about their feelings and speak up for themselves.  When they can’t speak out, they turn inward and react the only way they know how…to the only thing they can control.

It is important to understand that these are actions done to themselves, but they are not suicidal actions.  Nonetheless, they are important to catch and are in great need of help. Not only does this include what I mentioned above, but also includes eating disorders, alcohol abuse, rick taking behavior, drug abuse, self-medicating, and smoking.

Here is a link to get more information if you or someone you love is in need of help…
