bolemia.. plz help

My friend has been bolemic and partially anorexic for a few months now,she throws up most everything she eats and goes days at a time w/o eating or drinking nething at all. She has extreme self esteem issues, she actually is one of the more prettier girls at my school. She also cuts herself on her ankle. Today she took a handful of pills. She is already in a support group and is seeing the school councelor regularly but im not sure its really helping, she seems to be getting worse. .... Anyway my question is, is there anything i can personally do to help her? and also is there a next step after a support group and counseling?

It's unfortunate, but there is NOTHING you can do to help her. If counselling and group support aren't enough, the next step is intense one-on-one therapy with an expert in the subject perhaps even in a controlled setting (euphemism for a hospital.) Her condition is DEADLY SERIOUS.

I suppose you could suggest this to her, but invariably she is in deep denial and would shut you out and perhaps resent you immensely!
