Joined this site to research how i can help my friend and have spent the last couple of weeks reading different posts but im still at a loss as to how i can help. Basic background her mother was killed in a bike accident her dad extremely abusive after her death to the point my friend voluntarily put herself in care where she stayed for 3 years before being moved out and into a carer house before getting a flat. Her younger sister is still with her dad which causes her all sorts of heart ache as he refuses to let her see her after she went through a rebelious stage getting tattoos, piercings ect. She has attempted suicide 3 times one causing damage to her liver and kidneys. Now shes cutting mainly her legs as i made a big deal over her arms (probably a bad thing to have done). i know i cant get her her sister or bring her mum back but surely there has to be something i can to to help her and any advice would be great.
