Hey there!
I'm Augustus.

I have a bipolar friend who cuts.
I've advised her to go to the Guidance Office in school, she did but she's still quite depressed.
Her depression might worsen again and she might start cutting.
I've tried multiple approaches to make her open up, but she won't.
How can I help her.
I really want to at least change a wee detail of her sadness.

If you push yournfriend to do something they aren't ready for your going to push them away.
Just be her friend, don't be judgemental, be available, get her to do something with you.
Go for a walk, run, hike, ride your bike, go to the gym, anything.
Just be there for her as a friend, and listen.
If it gets really really bad, you may need to tell someone, but you'll risk losing her trust she has in you and a friendship

Hi there!
I believe you're right.
I might come off as annoying.
I'll watch my actions.
Thanks!
