Well, I wouldn't say on you...

However, the actions occurring in the family, and the subsequent divorce quite likely did cause the child some problems. And each person, as you well know, deals with things differently.

I would say that her parents need to get in a treatment plan for her. You may or may not be asked to be involved, but if the child is cutting, she needs help. Rather than try to play the blame game, her parents should be adults about the situation, and pursue the avenue of getting the kid the help she needs.
