Helping those you care about

So recently I had a friend who I learned was self harming himself daily. It had started a while back always repressing traumatizing things that had happened to him when he was younger. He never had many friends, I was one of his few friends. He had once told me he didn't believe in therapy because his older brother had done it to help his depression and it had caused a lot of family problems. Anytime me and any of his other friends tried to help him or give him advice he would either distance himself or give a pessimistic response. This went on for about a month of only seeing him here and there. One day we had found out he had been cutting his arms and legs with his knifes. Me and his other friend were concerned for him we were not sure what to do. We tried talking to him about it once but he would change the subject or tell us cutting was making him feel better. We started getting concerned when he would always say he didn't matter or that he didn't plan on having a future. Me and his other friend sent pictures of his cuts to his older brother in hopes he would talk to him, he didn't. So me and my friend agreed we would have to tell his parents, we texted his mom to meet us for coffee and I felt bad but we decided someone had to tell her and if the brother wasn't going to do it then we should, even if should cost our friendship with him. After giving his mom the hard news she said she is going to get him into therapy. Now although he understandably isn't talking to me anymore he is seeing therapy and getting the help he needs.

Therapy

Ok, so therapy is a word that can be used frequently and freely. Therapy is not a word that especially means a formal sit-down session with a therapist. Therapy can mean so many different things to different people.... Read More
