She should take up the problem with her teacher not accepting her absence with the administration.
I, however, fail to see how someone being concerned enough for her to call the police because she was a danger to herself as a mean or evil thing. I wish someone had done that for me back when I was a teenager and cutting. Cutting is NOT a good way to deal with anything. Ever. Honestly, if she had messaged me and said she was cutting, I would have done the same thing. Because I fucking care, even if I don't know her that well. Not for the least reason that if you're telling someone that you're cutting...it usually means that you want help.
And finding a new diagnosis and getting her medication adjusted is a good thing. Hopefully it will treat the root cause and she won't feel the need to PHYSICALLY DAMAGE herself anymore.
I am very sorry that she feels the need to behave in a self-destructive way. I am very sorry that she doesn't see herself as the beautiful person that I think she is. I am very sorry that the experience was harrowing to her and that the medical staff wasn't kinder to her.
I do, however, think that the action on the part of her friend was very much warranted and actually proves that he cares for her.
