Free Bookmarks for Scars with tips on dealing with self-harm…and a way to use the bookmarks

I offer free bookmarks for Scars with tips on how to deal with self-harm; if you want some, just email me your snail mail address. You can also access the tips at my site. (You can also request a free signed bookplate.)

Jennifer Wharton, a youth services librarian at Matheson Memorial Library, had a fantastic idea on how to use the bookmarks. She told me that she’s going to put one bookmark into every copy of Scars that’s returned to the library. That means, when the copies get checked out again, that the library patron will have a bookmark with tips on how to deal with self-harm, right there in front of them. I love it!

You might also consider giving a bookmark (or all three) to someone you know who’s dealing with self-harm, or who works with people who deal with self-harm.

There are three individual bookmarks–Helpful Responses to Someone Who’s Self-Harmed; Alternatives to Self-Harm; and How To Stop Self-Harming.

Know another way to use the bookmarks? Let me know.
