My 24 yr old daughter recently told me she has been depressed for years and has been harming herself by slamming her body or arms, legs etc to try to relief her pain. She also admitted she thinks a lot of suicide. I am taking her into a dr. Tomorrow in hopes of getting a referral for another dr. I am feeling helpless and paralyzed with fear for her safety . I am wanting any and all advise on how to help her with this and in turn help us as a family.

I'm glad you are helping your daughter seek treatment, I hope you find a really good, smart Psychiatrist to treat her.

I urge you to look to your local NAMI for support. They are a fantastic organization with in-person support groups for both you and your daughter.

Here is the link to find one near you:

Take care!
