to tell you the truth it's in her hands. Sometimes the best thing you can do is just listen. it is probably just something she needs to work through. I had a supervisor once that asked me to enter into a suicide contract stating that i would promise not to kill myself for a period of time- mine was a month at a time, and i was to call her if i felt like doing anything, or even hurting myself. This was kinda cool because it helped her to feel less burdened and helped me to know that at least for a period of time i couldn't do anything because i respected her and honored the contract. If you think she would really commit to it, you might suggest this to her. A lot of the counseling i went through just irritated me and made me more confused, but it might not be the same for her, if she wanted to find a good mental health provider it might help out. Other than that, i think it might just take time.
