Obviously you feel the need to help but don’t ever begin to feel obligated to help them. It’s not your responsibility to look after them (unless, of course, if it’s a sibling or close family member). Do they have cuts on their arms or legs (or anywhere really)? If so, mention it but if they don’t seem to want to talk about it, drop the topic. Lots of my friends self harm but I’m sure some of them do it for attention (it’s complicated how I know this but it’s not just a blind assumption). I understand that you may feel like you need to get involved but many self harmers would rather no one knows about it. The best thing to do would probably be to write them anonymous notes with positive things written on them like, ‘You’re needed. Don’t forget that’ or ‘We love you.’. (I’m aware this sounds stupid but when I used to self harm that would’ve made my day and maybe even have brought me out of a very bad place.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.
