Brad The Therapist :

Thank you for your question. Before providing suggestions, I have a few questions. First, how long has she isolating herself in her room? Is she eating and taking care of herself? Do you feel her life is in danger?


She is eating and drinking and no I don't think her life is in danger

Brad The Therapist :

good, her physical well-being is being met. She may be grieving the loss of her boyfriend, and I urge you to give her space to grieve. Please continue to share your concerns and support of her wellbeing. Please encourage her to seek therapy services.

Brad The Therapist :

another suggestion I have for you is to attend a support group for families who have a loved one with a mental illness. You will receive the support you need to go through this tough time
