I'm a mother of my one, and only, daughter who began cutting at the age of 11 years old. She never told me, and didn't want me to know what she was suffering from and doing. I noticed the signs: depression, long sleeves, and bracelets up her arms. I brought it to her attention, and she began to come clean with her feelings. 3 years have passed. Admitted 3 times to Nix, Laurel Ridge, and Clarity. So much help for our children.
