A member asked:

What can i do when my girlfriend has depression but she doesn't even want to talk about going to a doctor?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Won't get help!: First:validate however she is feeling.Ask questions until you understand how she feels, what she needs, what she might be afraid of, and how she thinks she can have the health, wellbeing, and life that she wants. Getting better, seeking help is a process. Help her along her process. The only time to interfere is if her or anyone's safety is acutely at risk.Then call 911 or take her to her md or er.
