My name is Gabrielle. I began to self-injure at age fifteen and continued to do so for fifteen years. I recently relapsed but am attempting a year without self-harm. This website was made to let self-injurers know that they are not alone and to help their friends and family learn more about self-injury and how it affects their loved one.

This is a community but there is an extensive FAQ about self-injury and a detailed series of pages about recovery from self-injury. There is also an pretty large list of resources for self-injurers. There is a detailed list of where self-injury appears in the media, be it movies, celebrities, music. It is both to show how self-injury affects media and has moved into the creative social conscious and as a trigger warning for those avoiding depictions of self-injury.

DOCUmentary about Cutting and Carving

by - 3 comments

I am part of a three-person award-winning filmmaking team. We are hoping to make an honest, empathetic, non-judgemental and non-exploitative documentary film about cutting and carving, to be shown on a major network. The goals would be to shatter societal misconceptions, myths and to help raise awareness.  To shed light and truth on a previously dark subject and to possibly empower those brave enough to share their stories; and to help those who may be suffering in silence.
