  • Since most of the people I talk to in confidence are actually children I would definitely seek help for them.

  • What is it that they are doing? Hurting yourself can fall in alot of different catagories...are they cutting themselves? or maybe just drinking to excess....either way the very first thing I would do is just be a person that they can trust to talk to...I would gently encourage them to seek help on their own but I don't think I would be pushy about it...thats just not my style...but I would make sure that they know that I am there for them to help them in whatever way they need. Good luck mama

  • Just let them know you're there and call alot. Don't prove you're not trustworthy. Most people just need a friend.
