How can help someone that cuts?

My friend Amy has started to cut again. She stopped for a month until something bad happened to her family and I try talking to her about it but she doesn't know what to do. I want to help her out. What should I do or tell her?

You should just keep being there for her. If she feels someone is there to support her, she could feel inspired to stop. Just give her your time, and all should work out. I hope this helps, and that things work out!

Try to do things with her often. I have heard from a former cutter that people taking up your time helps, because you don't have time to cut.
Also, I've never cut, but I've been through a lot. All I know is, when I'm with my friends, I can forget all about it, just for a moment. I hope this helps.
I hope your friend gets better.

be there for her but u should also get her help my step sister did the samething and yeah at first she was mad at me for going and telling her mother but you need to do that otherwise it could lead to her hurt herself more and more. now that my step sister is getting the help she needs she's told me many times that if it wasnt for me getting her the help she needed she wouldn't even be here today. people that cut are really trying to show you they are hurting and need help. dont keep it to yourself thet need some help from a doctor and there mom and dad if there in there life.

Always support her and be their for her.If she wants to talk about it always listen.If you see she has a razor,blade etc dispose of it,let her know that you will be with her every step of the way,best of luck.

Just talk to her about it! But make sure she is listening and don't be rude about it or make rude comments. I have a friend who cuts and she stopped because of me supporting her and motivating her to stop! :)
