  • Talk to her, listen, ask open ended questions, let her fill the silence, invite her to do things, go over and help her with things. Be honest but kind. A lot of times just knowing that someone loves you unconditionally will do wonders. If you are worried that she is going to harm herself or someone else, call the local mental health line, better to lose the friendship then the friend.

  • Just tell your friend that it's cyclical and to hang in there or get help. Maybe he/she will take some Vitamin B complex. That will help

  • I think you need to convince them that talking about what's bringing her down is a good way to resolve their inner conflict. It may take some time before they will be ready to open up to it all.
