films on self harm - November 22nd 2016, 12:58 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Does anyone know any films that are about self-harm? I think that watching would help me, not trigger me...

Thirteen - A girl self harms and does drugs
Short Term 12 - Two of the characters self harm, it's not the biggest focus but plays a large role
Wristcutters: a love story - basically, people that commit suicide all go to the same place. it has some self harm but isn't the main focus
Girl, Interrupted - has some self harm, but focuses more on life in hospital

I have some more but they're mostly movies in which it's either briefly mentioned/shown, or is a lesser plot line. I also have a few that are more about mental health/suicide and less about self harm. There really aren't TOO many movies explicitly about self harm like painful secrets/secret cutting was.

28 Days
Prozac Nation
Painful Secrets (which you mentioned in another thread)

My typical movie that I go to is Thirteen. I honestly love that movie so much. It's so similar to my own life.

Here's a thread I made. There were a lot of movies and other threads posted in it. Maybe you can find something in there as well? Click here for the link.

I love 28 days and girl interrupted but if I remember correctly self harm isn't a huge theme in those. It's mentioned a bit.

I think thirteen is better if you want something that focuses more on self harm.
