  • Id say depression but when one adds Inappropriate sexual behavoir to the picture that would point more to a mental or personality disorder. There's not enough info there to be able to give even a probable diagnoses... it could thou maybe be something like "borderline personality disorder" (BPD) with the sexual behavour and self multilation symptoms. Self multilation is like the norm in BPD. BPD often coexists with other mental health issues. (it could thou be other mental health issues too.. as other things fit those symptoms too). http://www.bpdcentral.com/resources/basics/main.shtml i suggest to read that and see if she fits. Proper diagnosis thou does need to be done by doctor.

  • Was she sexually abused? Sounds like she needs mental health intervention ASAP. If she is under 18, you can have her committed. But if she is 18 or older, I would try and presuade her to check herself into the hospital or at least see someone.
