i used to cut, and did it for many reasons, it started out as a flimsy no balled half ass suicide attempt and then it just kinda turned into a stress relief, a habit, sometimes i even just did it for fun. alot of the time it was cut or flip out and break shit. one day i decided that id rather flip out and punch something then constantly have to hide my wrists & thighs. cutting is complex and was really common where i live, but its a scary thing and i cant imagine having to deal with it as a parent who loves their child. showing her you care is more than my parents did, my mom said "oh that's mature" and sent me to my room. alone. ill give you two guesses what i did next.
make sure she knows you love her and care about her and if there is something bothering her that you will do the best you can to help her. counselling is a good idea but counselling just isnt for everyone. maybe find reading materials and self help websites or books or other options where she can start to get a handle on what she is feeling without having to lay it all out in front of a stranger. if she is cutting really deep than DEFINATELY get her help ASAP before it gets too deep
