Intentional Self Harm

Our focus it to reach out to the community and help the others. With this focus in mind, we have been working on flyers we can send with the taxes to remind others and create caution about people that are suicidal or may self harm themselves. We want the community to know how to find help for themselves or those people in need. 

Memebers from Safe Intentional Self Harm want to help those people in need, and we can only do this with your help. 

 

Are you or someone you care about expriencing the following:

  • Making direct or indirect statements about suicide, including via social media or in writing 
  • Seeking out ways to harm or kill oneself     
  • Giving away favourite possessions or saying goodbye
  • Persistent thoughts of suicide 
  • Known previous suicide attempts 
  • Preoccupation with death and dying
  • Expressed feelings of hopelessness and/or helplessness

  • A marked reaction to a bereavement, specific loss, or a significant triggering event 
  • Destructive or risky behaviour related to drug or alcohol use
