Background: I see crazy people. Ok my sil and my brother are both mentall ill. Depressed and each deals with it poorly. My brother killed him self--my sil (hub-sis) is a person who hybernates.
So I need to know how to deal with my teen almost 18 who is sad. We have her at a mental health provider. Which wants to do a psych. evaluation. All good.
I don't know how to deal with her or what to say to help her. She is sad,sad,sad. It is not that she is sad about anything. It is the mental illness. She has so many good things that are going on in her life to look foreward to. She can't see that. I try to not be mean but I do not have the skills to help someone who can't help her self. Any thoughts, ideas, comments or things that you know to be helpful?
