What the Expert Says:

It sounds like your girlfriend is dealing with some pretty serious issues at home. She is using the cutting as a coping skill. Away to deal with what's going on at home.

This isn't a secret that you want to keep. Please talk with an adult about what's going on with your girlfriend. They can help to make sure that she is safe.

We have also included an article of the yourlifeyourvoice websit about other ways that your girlfriend can release her pain besides cutting.

Keep a close watch on her. If she doesn't want to talk about it then wait until she's ready to. Just don't give up on her. She needs you to support her.
