Support and resources for teen girl who is cutting?
We are in so much pain and are worried about our 14 year-old girl. We recently found out she has been depressed and cutting - albeit infrequently - since March 2020. She is also now struggling with adjusting to 9th grade and her bisexuality. We love her and support her unconditionally so were stunned as well as guilt-ridden, as she is a straight-A student, seemed happy, with friends, and showed no signs of depression. We simply had no idea. We are starting therapy for her this week, but just feel so adrift, sad, and alone. Does anyone have any experience with teens who have cut? Or know of any resources, support groups (maybe even for us parents), or other helpful sites? We would be so grateful. I would love to be able to envision a happy resolution, or something to hope for. Thanks in advance.
