self harming

    I have recently found out that a close family member is self harming. He is only a young teenager. He also started smoking and he might be doing drugs.
    Do you know of any book, forums, groups, documentary, etc, who might help me helping this person and helping me to deal with it?
    I am feeling so lost.
    Thank you in advance

    I would say maybe talking to a GP would be the first port of call. This would need to be approached carefully, I've been there myself and it's a tough one to approach.
