MARCH IS ADOLESCENT-SELF-INJURY-AWARENESS-MONTH (AS-I-AM)
A Different Kind of March Madness... ASIF declares that the month of March is
Adolescent-Self-Injury-Awareness-Month (AS-I-AM). Every March, the rates of youth self-injury and suicidal behaviors escalate. Parents are caught off-guard and are ill-prepared to intervene.
Did you know that self-injury is the most significant risk factor for possible subsequent suicide?
Did you know that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of teen death?
Did you know that youth self-injury has become a global public health crisis of epidemic proportions?
Did you know that self-injuring teens are 18 times more likely to possibly commit suicide and 34 times more likely to possibly die of alcohol or drug overdose?
Once self-injury stops, potential subsequent suicidal tendencies can be overcome!
