- wear blue and green, the official colors of the trichotillomania awareness ribbon
- use social media to spread awareness
- share your experiences if you or a loved one has trichotillomania
- attend or host a special event to spread awareness
- watch documentaries, read blogs, etc. and learn about the experiences of a person with trichotillomania (def check out TrichJournal on YouTube or Tumblr)
- if you have the necessary funds to do this, you can also donate to various trichotillomania and/or BFRB-based non-profits, or go to the TLC Store and purchase ribbons, books, fidget toys, books, and more in order to show support and raise awareness.
- reach out to friends or family members with trichotillomania
Again, these are just a few ways to spend the next week or so. You can do all of these, pick and choose, whatever! Thank you to all who have worked to further raise awareness for trichotillomania, a disorder sometimes called "the most common disorder you've never heard of."
Happy Trich Awareness Week!
P.S. YO I JUST REALIZED... why haven't we made "trich-or-treat" a thing yet? Like, that would be a totes adorbs way of acknowledging trichotillomania and how its Awareness Week occurs in October. Damn, I'm on a roll today.
