I have a friend who is currently self harming I want to call it in as a welfare check but she has a bad fear of the police when they get near her and I'm afraid that if I do she will run from them and try to kill herself I need some advice what should I do

Give the police all pertinent info when you call.

My concern would be that if they go and dont see fresh evidence they'll leave and she'll be more triggered. Have you tried to get her to check herself in for help ?

Is her self harming life threatening?
Is she not replying to your contact?

Yes I have and she stopped talking to me a couple of days ago I know she is still alive because she posts on facebook constantly but she just won't reply to my messages or calls I'm just afraid that she will go too far with it especially if the police show up

Do you know her family ? Maybe get them involved. But if youre honestly worried about her safety, make the call and let them know your concerns

She doesn't have any family left that aren't drug addicts and I am about to make the call if she doesn't respond in the next couple of minutes
