Default Is this depression..?

Hello everyone,
I am a new member. I was searching for help for my friend. She was very energetic and loved by everyone. But after the death of her mother, she is kind of alone. She doesn't talk to me anymore. She misses her classes. It's been almost a year now.


Is this normal or should I be worried about her..??
Please help..

Hi Nancy, welcome to the forum. If she was very close to her mother and is now left alone, she probably is depressed and still grieving strongly, it's been less than a year.

Have you tried to visit with her, maybe take her out for lunch or to a movie or something? How old is she, very young or a senior?

It's hard to say what's normal, if she's withdrawing from everyone and every activity, then it is worrisome. It would be great to get her out somewhere, maybe a nice restaurant and have a heart to heart with her.

Of course, do more listening than talking. I really think if she shares her feelings and what's on her mind, a weight will be lifted somewhat and she might get out of her slump.

Is she drinking now or overusing medications because of this? Is she still taking care of herself, appearance, etc. Do you or anyone else every see her at all anymore?
