Hi. My daughter is 17 and she has become very socially anxious and depressed. I don't know what caused it, if anything and she doesn't tell me. It happened very suddenly and it feels like she just changed. How can I help? I don't want to pressure her to open up to me, but if something bothers her, I want to be able to help. How do I approach this situation? Should I keep asking her if everything is ok or propose therapy or just let it be?
Hi @Michel! How are you?
Thank you very much for starting this discussion. I think the fact that you are trying to help and are aware of something being off is the first step to helping your daughter. I think it is important to create a safe environment for her to open up when she feels ready. I will ask other members and hopefully, we all can help your family.

Hey everyone! How is your day going?
How do you think @Michel should approach this situation? What to do when you notice someone in your family getting depressed and socially anxious? How to express support without coming off as pushy?
