concerned about my friend

i have a friend that i think is depressed, they are telling me that they are depressed. i don't know what to do to help this person. They are locking themselves in their room and is cutting themselves. Their parents know and due to stuff happening at school they will not go back to school. This is not the first time they have hurt themselves by cutting.

Thanks Luke for your caring about your friend, this is very important. There are good links to resources about depression in this website.
Talking to and getting support from the local West Coast PHO Counselling team as soon as you can is a practical start.
