The second idea is that often when people cut they are truly going through a difficult time and taking the step to get help is what is needed. I know kids who have called their friends' parents when they are concerned or spoken to a school or church counselor. Sometimes you realize that something like this will make your friend angry but that in the long run it is the right thing to do.
