My 14 yr old granddaughter is being manipulated by her boyfriend.

I had a best friend in a similar situation in our youth. First, teach her to have independence and get her into emotional counseling. Many girls who cut, even after the initial cause is gone, will continue to do so to fill this "void" that they perceive in their lives.
Then perhaps find something she can love, a pet, or an activity of pride, like art, music, theater, dance, and hope that she will latch onto that, to fill that "void".
Overall stress, kindly, that she is a beautiful girl, and find all sorts of things about her (most should be physical since she's that that age) that are stunning.
Take her out on complete mother-daughter dates to improve her self-image, spas, day out on the town, shopping, modeling cute clothes, and do everything you can to make sure she knows she isn't alone.
Because usually...that's how they feel no matter how happy the people around them are.
