In the spring of 2002, several students / ex-students came together to launch an online-only organisation to raise awareness around self-injury.
Since then, several of the ‘bigger’ websites out there have refocused their efforts to include self-injury and self-harm among their mental health and youth support work.
Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) was a big success across the country (and the world) and now LifeSIGNS is turning thirteen in May. We’re moving from raising ‘awareness’ to ‘creating understanding’. We want to ignite real change for people who feel trapped in self-injury, and misunderstood by friends, family, and health care professionals.
