Today, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read Nichrysalis's Fears vs Dreams and Beccalicious' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.

What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

maytel made a beautiful Artisan Crafts feature and she's available to talk too :) I picked some more crafts related to self-harm, please enjoy them and if you think I missed any let me know :) some of them donate the profits to organizations dedicated to preventing and treating self-harm, so if you're looking to make a contribution this is your chance to get something pretty in return too!

You know I actually didnt see this the other day in the journal list and I was a little disappointed, I guess I just missed it! I'm glad more people than just me wrote a journal on Self-Harm awareness! I love the crafts feature too, that's really cool!
