Resolved Question:

Hey, My 15 yr old daughter was talking to my husband onthe weekend. She has after a number of swoopings developed a phobia of birds. She also said she sometimes sees shadows out of the corner of her eye, and feels scared by these. She also hears messages in her own voice that she feels are from my late father-in-law law (who she still misses after 10 years), but the talks are always positive. She doesn't hear his voice.

Good Evening,

you would want to have her evaluated by a psychiatrist. Individuals who are severely depressed may report similar scenarios especially about seeing shadows at the corner of their eyes.

She is also reporting auditory hallucinations which, too can take place during a psychotic episode during depression.

Have her be evaluated by a child/adolescent psychiatrist who can also prescribe medication to treat the depression as well as the hallucinations. The person can also rule out other possible reasons such as schizophrenia.
