Hi. I have a daughter who is now 17 but at the age of 16 was diagnosed with autism just as she had started her GCSE's. She has struggled throughout her schooling and has ran away, self-harmed and tried over-dosing on tablets. Now all tablets, razors are locked away after she self-harmed again this week. She had been under CAMHS for the past 2-3 years before her diagnosis. I just wondered if there is anyone else who has had this happen or happening with their child ? I know it is more common in girls to self-harm apparently
