I have this friend who is nice and she knows how I feel a lot! Lately her sisters ( older and twin ) and her parents been treating her like she doesn’t belong. She doesn’t act her age because she is scared to because her parents slaps her whenever she forgets her homework. I really have no idea what to do! She been trying to hurt herself because of it and I stopped her. I just want to give her ways to stop this for her. If she talks back to her parents they’ll slap her until she is crying. Is there anything I can do to help her without her getting in trouble? Sorry that this is personal problems but she seriously needs help.
P.s: I seriously I have no idea what to do and if her family keeps this up then I’ll loose the one person who I can ALWAYS talk to about many things.
Tell someone, preferably a trusted adult, immediately. I'm only a user here, so I can't do much and I won't say I'm the best source for advice on this situation but if you know someone is being abused and is having dangerous self-harming thoughts and tendencies, you need to let someone know. The friend might feel betrayed, but if this gets them in a better, safer situation, it's worth the risk.
Read more on these things here and here. Again, I'm not a professional, but abuse and self-harming are not things you should keep from adults that can help find a solution to save your friend.
