What is going on in our high schools? Girls are getting together and cutting themselves! I asked a few parents (at Gunn) if they have heard about this and they said 'yes', but that the school does nothing about it. Recently a student went to a counselor and mentioned that he had a list of students that were cutting themselves. The response was, "we can't do anything about this. it's up to their parents." This student then went to the school psychologist and was given the same response. The student then went to the principal and was given the same response. Finally the student mustered enough guts to approach one of the parents and the girl that was cutting herself is receiving help now. (she had been cutting herself for almost a year).
Has anyone else heard about this???
