In my experience with other cutters (which I admit isn't tons and I'm not a doctor or any expert by any means) most aren't actually suicidal. At least not the ones I've had experience with. And the ones that were a bit suicidal always tried stuff like pills rather than cutting. Fortunately it didn't work.
A person very close to me cuts on a somewhat regular basis, and I hate that they do, but I know that they're not suicidal. To them, the pain feels good and is something they can control. From my research, that seems to be what a lot of cutting is about, being able to control pain and for some of them it feels good. Again, I'm not an expert by any means.
