What’s your favorite film about Dissociative Identity Disorder (MPD)?

Movies often given a distorted, stereotyped and stigmatized view of people with DID. But some movies – including those based on real people – are definitely worth watching. It’s been difficult to draw up a list of top movies to review: some movies feature high up on imdb’s list of movies tagged Dissociative Identity Disorder – others feature lower down but are highly rated, or Oscar winners. Wikipedia’s List of DID movies wasn’t as helpful – it contains spoilers and is fairly poor, which isn’t surprising given Wikipedia’s frequent intimidation of, bias against, and false information regarding DID.

Self Injury Awareness Day #SIAD

Walsh (2012) defines self-harm (referring to direct self harm) as

self-inflicted physical harm severe enough to cause tissue damage or leave visible marks that do not fade within a few hours. Acts done for the purpose of suicide, or for ritual, sexual or ornamental purposes are not considered self-injury.

self  injury awareness day #SIAD

Today is March 1st – it’s Self Injury Awareness Day.

Self injury is also known as direct self harm, or non-suicidal self injury. It is not a mental disorder but is common in people with mental health difficulties.

Self harm is when someone intentionally damages or injuries their body. It is recognized as a way to cope with overwhelming feelings, which does not have suicidal intent. It is an attempt to stay alive by alleviating overwhelming emotional distress.

Self harm is linked to many mental health conditions, and often concealed. It is not “just to get attention”, and it should not be minimized or dismissed. Many people who self harm feel shame or guilt as a result, and will try to keep their self harming secret.

The Trauma and Dissociation Project

Our project started in January 2013 with an information website about Dissociative Identity Disorder, and in March we began the larger site which was edited and reviewed collaboratively, until Oct 2014.
Since November 2014 our new website has been available at http://traumadissociation.com and as the name refelects, this covers all the Trauma & Stressor and Dissociative Disorders.
The website is written based on academic sources, primarily books and journals written by experts in each field.
Our social networking projects also share some personal experiences from different people affected by the disorders – either personally or from the view of professions working in mental health.
