Dear friend, I will like to know more about her symptoms. Self harming behavior , taking pills to get sleep points towards depression, substance abuse disorder or may be a personality disorder. Any of the above mentioned illness needs to be treated on urgent basis. If she is refusing treatment take help of her parents and explain them about her changed behavior . All the best.
