The 1st of March marks the annual observance of Self-Injury Awareness Day or Self-Harm Awareness Day, an international event aimed at increasing awareness of this issue. Various factors, life events, or underlying mental health conditions may drive individuals to engage in self-harm, often used as a coping mechanism by those experiencing emotional distress. While comprehensive global self-harm data is not readily accessible, studies estimate its impact on approximately 14.6 million individuals each year.
