Join Us in Recognizing National Self Harm Awareness Month

This is a topic that the least talked about amongst our community. No one wants to focus on something that could potentially lead to death if not addressed. Society has taught us to brush it under the rug or that its an attention seeking behavior and so people have learned to suffer in silence. As we focus on bringing more awareness to this topic, let us help to break the silence and help those who need our support.

  • If you know someone who has voiced thoughts of wanting to harm themselves, please contact 911; you could save their life.
  • Don't think because they tell you that they are okay that you don't need to act. They may be embarrassed and say whatever it takes to get you off their back.
  • If you are still at odds on what to do, talk to a trusted person about the situation and remember that you could be saving a life. It is better to overreact than underreact.
  • Take the time to reach out to a professional in your area for advice on what to do.

Remember that here at Alive & Well we want to ensure that everyone feels supported. Our trusted staff can assist with helping you find ways to cope with life's everyday struggles and get you back on the right track.
