Self Injury Awareness Day

1 March is Self Injury Awareness Day and the University wants to remind staff and students of the support available to them.

Student Services has a webpage dedicated to self-help resources – please note that some of the guidance contains sensitive information that may be triggering for some.

A butterfly campaign will also be run on the HeadsUp Twitter page to mark the day. People draw a butterfly on themselves, create a butterfly badge or wear something with butterflies on to: 

  • Raise awareness of support services
  • Support those who have experienced self injury in the past 
  • Reduce the stigma surrounding self injury to encourage those who experience it to seek help

You can share photos of your butterflies using the hashtag #SIAD and tagging @lboroheadsup.

If you are a student and have any concerns about your mental health and wellbeing please get in touch with Student Services by completing the online referral form.  

If you are a member of staff and have concerns about your mental health and wellbeing, please visit the People and Organisational Development webpage for further support.
