In brief: Dr. can evaluate her

There are good treatments for depression.
A primary care doctor can evaluate to be sure one does not have a physical illness related to the depression. School, work, and family troubles can lead to depression, but the reverse can also happen. Prescription medications are very helpful, and help one improve enough to really benefit from counseling. Family can call 911 if a depressed one is suicidal.
