I'm going to tag in @Aurora and @Monsoon so that they can help you. The only advice I can offer is to show your friend that you still like/appreciate them, and that you care and are there for them.

Hey,

Welcome to the Ditch the Label community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice to those who reach out to us.

Thank you for coming to us about your friend; she is so lucky to have a friend like you who is so caring and committed to supporting her. You are clearly a very kind and special person. 

I'm wondering, can you tell me more about the mental torture? Would you say your friend is safe at the moment?

Hey,

Yeah, it sounds like she's really struggling at the moment, but it's great that she has you to help her through. I'm wondering, what makes you think she cant see or ignores the things you do?

Also, one of the best things you can do when someone is struggling is to let them express their feelings so you can listen to and understand their situation more. Sometimes, people just want to share how they are feeling, and that is so helpful in itself. So, a lot of it might just be around being there to listen and understand.  When people feel heard after they vent, this can then create space in their head to think about the next steps for change. What do you think?

Have you tried saying something like "what's the best way I can help you? I can listen but would like to be able to help if I can" or something similar? 

What do you think?

Hey there,

That's interesting. Maybe she is communicating that she doesn't want to talk about it and needs space to cope with it in a way. What do you think?
