First time posting hope everyone is having a not so bad evening.  I have a granddaughter who is 15 with a few issues with mental health. She self-harms, has taken an overdose of drugs, has been hospitalised, has panic attacks, been bullied horrendously and wants to be a nurse, but with all her missed schooling through one thing or another I'm not sure where she starts to put right the long list of to do's to catch up. some days just getting out of bed is an achievement for her other days she talks a mile a minute and is bubbly and girly and makes you laugh at her audaciousness. Love her to bits but am at a loss to know what to do except be there.
