My best friend is dealing with so many things. Mainly with a lot of anxiety, constantly scratching herself and her arm is full of scars (she cuts herself). I don't know how to help her. When she showed me her scars the other day, I didn't know how to react. Sometimes I give her my hands so she distracts and stops scratching for a while, but I can't always be with her and sometimes it gets to the point when she bleeds.
She was also clean from self-harm for almost a year, but now it's all getting worse again.
What can I do to help her? I've never struggled with my own mental health, so I don't really know how can I help others who do.
I can't tell anyone else, this is a thing she hides from everyone except me. I know she needs help, not from me, but a psychologist, but she doesn't want to go. She says that it's nothing important.
I can't stand seeing the person I love the most slowly being destroyed.
So if anyone has ever been in her situation, please give me advice on how can I help her, I would appreciate it so much. How to properly react to scars (she shows them to me sometimes) how to check on her... Anything, please.
