Paris Jackson will be in treatment for months, for a dark depression that is putting her life in serious jeopardy ... TMZ has learned.
We're told Paris' family is scoffing at law enforcement claims that her "suicide attempt" earlier this month was merely a cry for help. We're told when the bandages on her arm were removed, the damage was "horrifying." As one source put it, "Paris absolutely tried to kill herself, and it wasn't the first time."
Our sources say Paris is deep into the world of cutting. We've seen Paris' Tumblr page, and it's filled with pics of death, suicide and cutting. Several pics show teenagers putting guns in their mouths. As for cutting, the pics are graphic and very bloody. In one pic you see a girl with scissors cutting her arm with a caption, "I f**king hate myself."
In one posting, there's a piece of paper with the following type: "Why did you try to kill yourself?" The answer: "You told me to be happy."
And there are other photos of young girls who have just cut themselves and blood is everywhere.
Family sources tell TMZ ... Paris is "doing better" at UCLA Medical Center but is still in denial and is fighting therapy. Although she has no desire now to cut herself again, we're told professionals are warning the family they need to figure out the triggers that plunge her into darkness.
Sources say ... Paris will move from UCLA to another treatment center, and she could be there for 3 months.

The only thing that is going to heal Paris is to get as far away from the Jackson's as possible. Hopefully there is a large chunk of money put away for her, and do something fulfilling with her life. Be it higher education, charity work, even a spokeswoman for cutting. Such a beautiful girl, can turn into an even more beautiful woman she just needs to have the right people around her. Which is obvious she doesn't have now.
