cutting and depression

By Dr. Marie Hartwell-Walker

i have been depressed for so long n its because ive been raped n lost my mom n much more n ive started cutting n they keep getting deep n deep n i just wanna know what should i do

A: I am so very glad you wrote. Reaching out for help is the first step to getting it. What you should do is call the Rape Crisis Center right away. This is much too heavy a load for a 13-year-old to carry. Please check out this website. You’re not alone. There are people who can help.

I wish you well.
