Ruta Mazelis

Self-injury and cutting with Ruta Mazelis, psychiatric abuse survivor and editor for 17+ years of the acclaimed newsletter “The Cutting Edge”. Cutting, burning, head banging and other self-harm are discussed from the point of view of people doing them — as coping mechanisms that need compassion and understanding, not the force and judgment of mainstream psychiatry.

  1. What a great show! Thank you so much! I didn’t notice that there is actually a lot of feminist criticism of the borderline label. Could you point out some resources?
