Yes it is considered as self harm so I've had to edit your post.
Being there for your friend and understanding why she does it would help.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry, I didn't realize I'm not allowed to post things like that.
Thanks again for your help

Being there for her when she wants to talk about whatever's bothering her will help her :hug: Not judging her will help as well (I don't see any judgement in your post, I'm just saying)
