Scars of Self-Injury Examined at Lifetree Café
Sun., Oct. 9, 7 p.m. 2016
Cutting and other forms of self-mutilation will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, October 9 at 7 p.m.
The program, titled “Cutting: The Epidemic of Self-Mutilation,” features filmed interviews with two individuals who committed acts of self-harm including cutting and burning.
“After a while it became a medicine for me,” says one of the individuals, who describes cutting herself regularly for a period of two years. “Whenever I wasn’t comprehending something completely, or whenever I was in a daze from depression, I would cut, and it would give me the medicine I needed.”
During the program, participants will have an opportunity to discuss emotional wounds they’ve experienced in their own lives and how they’ve responded to them.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13th, Arcata.
