LEWISTON — Cutting and other forms of self-mutilation will be discussed at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Lifetree Café, 1919 Lisbon Road.

The program, “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 a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual setting.
