''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'': [[spoiler:Yuri]] ritualistically cuts is revealed to have a habit of cutting herself. [[spoiler:There is a scene where the player character to come across her slicing her arm open with a knife from her collection, [[RewindGag only for the game to rewind back to an earlier point]]. Monika also brings it up, claiming she does it when she's "excited." This explanation is supported by various other details in the game, and provides a possible reason why Yuri would stab herself when she gets excited.even if you accept her confession. However, since Monika has a ''reason'' to make Yuri look bad, it's unclear how much she's telling the truth.]]

In reality, however, there are many reasons for self-harm, and it is not confined to (or encouraged by) any particular subcultures. It is usually a sign that someone is really hurting inside or suffering from mental illness; self-harm is associated with a variety of mental illnesses, including depression and [[HollywoodPersonalityDisorders borderline personality disorder]] (BPD is, in fact, the only illness which for which the DSM lists self-harm as a criterion.) Contrary to the belief that they are seeking attention, many self-injurers will go to great lengths to [[CutHimselfShaving hide their injuries]].

* To communicate to others: Although it's much less frequent than is usually portrayed, some people self-harm because they don't know how to effectively communicate to others. It doesn't make them manipulative or attention-seeking, it just means that they don't know of better ways to communicate.

It doesn't make them manipulative or attention-seeking, it just means that they don't know of better ways to communicate. It can be a sort of distress signal. Some people do this because they feel that their mental health isn’t taken seriously and use this to say, “Please, listen. I need help. This really is an issue. This is what can happen if I don’t get the help I need.”
