What do you do if your friend cuts herself ?

I have a friend who cuts herself all the time. She tells me she thinks she's worthless and always talks about how much she wants to die. I've tried talking to her and many other things but none of it is working. I don't want to tell her parents or mine because they over react and I'm transferring schools so I don't have a stable counsellor , so I don't know if I should talk to someone and if so who? she always seems depressed and she doesnt want to get better and I really just don't know what to do. Please help me it's killing me. she means the world to me.

My daughter went through the same stuff in high school. She was really embarrassed to tell me, and I wasn't mad at her at all, just very sad that she was feeling that way. I could relate to the feelings I had back then, and I think a lot of girls go through some tough times in this age group. I wanted her to talk to a counselor, but she did not feel comfortable doing that. I talked to her about her feelings, and she ended up confiding in her close friend, who eventually helped her see that she could express her feelings through journaling, painting, doing exercise, or other distractions when she felt like hurting herself. She turned out to do some awesome artwork and eventually made it through. She's 21 now, has a great job working with animals at the shelter, and is a caring friend to others. I hope that something here may help your friend. If things get worse, though, I would definitely bring it up to one of the parents, as you wouldn't want your friend to really injure herself. Good luck.

This was my exact problem. my friend told her counselor and now i go to a therapist and lemme tell u, it really helps. tell them they need a therapist and that it will help. she (your friend) can ask her parents to see a therapist and that the therapist isnt allowed to tell anyone anything, its ilegal for them to do it without your permission.

Look what your friend is going she will regret it ask her why she is doing this in the first place adn maybe you could take of the problem. If that don't work you need to tell the counselor or more importantly her parents they will know what to do.

She needs to be stopped, this should be bought to the notice of the principal or class teacher. Some schools have councilors where she can get some guidance. She may be living in a very bad atmosphere, she needs to pay a visit to psychologist and treatment is a must.
