Self-cutting is a symptom of certain types of mental illness. However, it is generally not an indication that the patient is considering suicide.

Self-cutting and other forms of self-harm can indicate many psychiatric disorders such as borderline personality disorder, clinical depression, anxiety, substance abuse, anorexia nervosa, bulimia, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and other personality disorders. It is often consistent with a medical history of abuse.
