My friend’s severely depressed. I don’t know what to do.

Hozzászólva Wisconsin fórum

My friend moved back abroad with her family to try and earn enough money to pay off all their debt. She and her boyfriend, who are now long distance, are constantly fighting over how my friend is. Her boyfriend doesn't seem to help her when she’s having depression episodes and my friend seems to disregard anyone’s opinion or feelings when she asks for help. I’m torn in between the two of them because they both have their own faults. One, my friend is so depressed that I don’t even know how to help or comfort her. Two, I understand what her boyfriend is going through because she’s literally almost impossible to handle when she’s going through her episodes.

I tried giving her advice, a number to a foreign therapist that my family knows who’s residing in her state, and convincing her boyfriend to not give up on my friend. I’ve tried everything. I honestly don’t know what to do anymore. I’m afraid my friend might do something rash. Advice please?
