#stillnotforattention campaign

One of the biggest misconception around self harm is that it is done for attention. This idea perpetuates the stigma around self harm and can be greatly detrimental to people struggling with it.

The #stillnotforattention campaign was started by Selfharmerproblems on Instagram in the summer of 2017. It is an Instagram campaign that shows pictures of people with visible self harm scars that want to share a message.

Its goal is to fight back against the idea that self harm, and more specifically not hiding self harm scars, is attention seeking. Another goal is to show that self harm recovery is possible and that even with scars you can still lead a happy and fulfilling life.
