Self-mutilation - Definition


Definition


Self-mutilation means the infliction of various kinds of wounds upon oneself, without intent to commit suicide. Self-mutilation is often due to mental trouble. Generally, the person who self-mutilates creates cuts in the skin, though burning, scratching, and hitting oneself are also forms of self-mutilation. The wounds may be inflicted upon one part of the body, or upon the entire body. Self-mutilation may be a consequence of depression, post-traumatic stress, addiction, an eating disorder, or a psychiatric pathology such as schizophrenia.
