What the Expert Says:

The best thing that you can do for your friend is to tell an adult what's going on with both the bullying and the cutting. This isn't something that you can handle on your own.

Your friend has every right to feel safe to school and most school districts have very strict policies regarding bullying. The school needs to know what's going on so that they can help put a stop to the bullying.

Your friends parents need to know what's going on with their daughter so that they can get their daughter the help that she needs.

It's likely not possible for you to stop the bullying but it is possible for you to play a very helpful role in this situation. Cutting is dangerous - by accident your friend could cut too deeply or cut in the wrong spot and bleed deeply. If a cut opens up and bleeds while your friend is sleeping, she could bleed to death.
Who beside you knows she cuts? Adults who can help with this need to be made aware of what's happening. Your friend's parents might even want to hire a lawyer and sue the school district! A school that does nothing about bullies is at fault.
Talk to your parents - get their help. Tell your favorite teacher at school - get that teacher's help. This isn't something that you can help with just on your own.
