18 Important Tweets to Pass Along on Self-Injury Awareness Day


On Self-Injury Awareness Day — March 1 — many people who are in recovery from self-harm and people who are still struggling with it every day, talk about a topic often kept hidden under long-sleeve shirts and shame. But there’s nothing shameful about self-harm, and people who are still hiding should know recovery is possible and that they’re allowed to speak about their pain.

To show there is hope for people who self-harm, we collected some tweets that offer support, tips for people who are trying to stop and a whole lot of love.
