What do I do if I suspect my child is self harming?

View Transcript

If I suspect my child is self-harming by any of the ways that I talked about: cutting, suicide ideation, an actual suicide attempt, talking about suicide, anorexia, bulimia then I would seek professional evaluation. Those are not normally within the realm of a parent's ability or a teacher's ability to intervene. Tell the child your concern. Get an evaluation as soon as you can.
