What the Expert Says:

If you are worried that your cousin is cutting again then the best thing to do is to be open and honest with her.

Let her know that you are worried about her and that you want to help her learn more healthy coping skills besides cutting.

You also need to let her parents know what's going on so that they can help her get the proper care.
