So a friend of my daughter's has admitted she has started cutting. Cannot tell her parents as her mother seems to be the reason why. She is 13 and confided in me. Please, serious help only for a SERIOUS problem. I have no idea what to do or how to help. Please give me insight? Trolls not welcome, this is serious.

Even under the best of circumstances it's a challenge for the professionals to find ways of reaching these troubled children in ways that are effective. Many of them have dealt with mental and emotional abuse most of their lives.
My own daughter had a very close friend, a girl she has known since 1st grade, become a mother at age 17 and take her own life a year later. Her home life was a nightmare.
I think the best we can do as friends is to let them feel that they are welcome into our lives. And prayer of course.0
