Self Harm is one thing that if you know of you should get that individual help. My daughter dated a young man in high school. They were very close dating, prom dates and so many other things. I heard about most of it, the one thing that I did not hear of is that he would hurt himself. A time went by and they broke up , he instantly got another girl friend and my daughter went to work but they continued to talk.

The young man was popular but noone wanted to tell as they were all close friends. Sadly one voice could have saved him
