i am new to this. My daughter,age 14, started harming a few months ago after a friend who did it dared her. Since then she has made an awful mess on her arms cutting, b**ning and scribing. She has been seen by the doctor and child and mental health team. The school has told me it is their policy to permanently exclude her if it doesn't improve as they can't take responsibility and to refer her to social services as she is at risk(from herself) I was quite appalled, as I felt that this was not at all helpful. Is this usual?
