Paris Jackson could continue her psychiatric care at another medical ward after she physically harmed herself this month.
The 15-year-old daughter of late singer Michael Jackson may enter a long-term facility following a short time at a UCLA Medical Center psychiatric ward in Los Angeles, California.
After seven more days where she is currently, the teenager might seek help elsewhere.
"Paris will be staying at least another week, and then she'll be going to a facility for additional care," a source told People magazine.
Paris was admitted into medical care on June 5 after an alleged history of cutting herself.
The final straw came when she tried to commit suicide by consuming pills seemingly with intention to overdose.
Apparently Paris’ grandmother Katherine Jackson and her biological mother made the joint decision to continue her treatment.
Katherine reportedly told Debbie Rowe that their loved one had "fallen in with the wrong crowd".
"This has been so hard for Mrs. Jackson," a source revealed about Michael’s mother, who has legal co-guardianship of Paris. "She keeps saying she's never had any experience of how to deal with someone in this situation."
The facility will take care of her educational needs as well as therapy.
Paris missed out on the wedding of her cousin Taj Jackson on June 16 while her siblings Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11, attended with their grandmother.
"They were having a blast and dancing," the insider added. "But Katherine seemed sad and thoughtful. Her mind is very much on Paris."
