Her parents broke up when she was 9. Have 6 step siblings which is their calling her trash or an unfortunate child. It come to the point that she keep slashing her wrist and thigh. Im worried because she's only 12...She told her parents about her depression and they only laugh at her.Her siblings think that she only do that to get their attention. What should i say to her to not to do that? (Dont mind the grammar)
Morpheus Advice: How about try to comfort her by staying her side and to slowly stop slashing her wrist and thigh. Say to her that "if no one in your family believe you or trust you, You have me whom you can trust and believe(which you must really do trust and believe her)" I guess that might cheer her up and maybe listening her problems when she came telling to you about her problems and giving her some helpful advises. It's will take a long time tho but i hope it really do work.
Tell her that she is right and they're wrong, everything will be alright and don't care for careless persons in life.
I think there is a severe imbalance of serotonin and dopamine also. It is very important that you really do make sure of the fact that the person concerned leads a healthy lifestyle. What was done was done. See everyone has their pain but be with the right people to pass time rightly.

I believe her parents are responsible for her condition. I am so amazed that she is only 12 and going through so much but nobody cares. I hope she will soon be loved and cared for and remains safe from her demons of anxiety and depression. I would wish her to be independent and happy as soon as she can, especially leaving the step-siblings would be a great idea. They would drive her nuts. She needs a psychologist and a doctor to help her and she needs a treatment for both depression and PTSD. Adults have a higher tendency to suffer from depression and PTSD after going through a similar childhood. Please be with her and support her a much as you can. It will be great. I would suggest that you help her by making her aware of her condition and mental health condition. https://mangoclinic.com/strategies-to-fight-depression/
This is a great help and a good step to be independent in your recovery. She is too young to take any anxiety and stress medicines.
I hope she is okay soon!
You need to be there for her for as long as you can. Be by her side and tell her and make her feel that you are there for her. Make her feel wanted and try and cheer her up as much as you can. Make her open up to you and try and understand her feelings. Make her adopt an animal that can be with her all day; this way she would feel the need to take care of herself to be able to take care of the pet. This helps with depression: https://esacare.com/emotional-support-animal-for-depression/ Also, if you can, do talk to her parents and sibling, make them understand what she is going through. Try to get her professional help if that is possible
I'm so sorry at such tender age someone has to go through this. I am encouraged that you want to help her and care so deeply. I think the most important thing you can do is show her how much you care for her. Remind her of her value and purpose, especially on days when she is struggling to see it on her own. Her parents and siblings are responsible for all this. Maintaining a distance from toxic people solves most of the problems. If she feels lonely she can opt for adopting an adorable pet that will make her forget the cruel realities of this world. https://esacare.com/role-of-esa-in-treating-psychological-disorders/
