Cutting to Cope: Understanding Self-Injury and How to Stop the Cycle
Monday, March 26th, 7:00 p.m., Clark Lounge

Cutting or burning yourself, interfering with the healing of wounds, hitting or bruising yourself, and biting your fingernails excessively are all forms of self-injury.

Self-Injury is the act of physically hurting yourself on purpose without the intent of committing suicide. It is a method of coping during an emotionally difficult time that helps some people temporarily feel better because they have a way to physically express and release the tension and the pain they hold inside.

Learn more about self-injury and how to respond to a friend who might be hurting her/himself.

A panel presentation by: Dr Vivian Lorenzo, Hammond Health Center; Dr Suki Montgomery, Counseling Center; Lind Koenig, Residential Life, and a self-injurer in recovery.
