March 1st is National Self-Injury Awareness Day. Please wear a red and black ribbon in support of the day.

This month I will be posting some information about self-injury.

I'll start today with a definition.
Self-harm is any action ones takes with the intent of hurting oneself and leaves marks lasting for more than one hour.

Some types of self-injury include cutting, burning, hitting oneself, interfering with the healing of wounds, bruising oneself, skin picking, hair pulling, and scab picking.
