daughter that hears voices

I have a mildly retarded almost 16 year old daughter that hears voices. the voices tell her to hurt herself and to hurt/kill others. She hasnt hurt others but she does have a history of cutting herself. We had to take away razors, scissors, and anything else that is sharp and for long periods of time she cant stay by herself. She doesnt have the skills to vocalize whats goin on in her mind and her heart. she does say that she feels lonley and and thats theres a hole in her chest but we cant get her to elaborate on that or why she feels that way. Her fave answer is i dont know. She sees a therapist that did bloodwork and said she is anemic and that is why she hears the voices. i have doubts. he put her on several meds for depression, mood stabilizer, anti-pyschotic and something else plus iron pills and vit C.
Would greatly appreciate if anyone that reads this can share wisdom.
