I am very worried about my 18 yr-old who has depression, is cutting, and is constantly communicating with a bulimic friend. How can I help her? She seems to be fine around family but when alone in college is isolated and harming herself. I need help.

I am wondering if she has seen a psychiatrist prior to going away to college? Is she on any medication?

I would make her an appointment with a psychiatrist asap!

What is your daughters mental health history? Prior meds ? Prior struggles?

A bit more info would be helpful,
Thank you!
