Cutting and other forms of self-mutilation will be discussed at Lifetree Café’ The program 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.
