Depression is treatable and manageable. She will need active support of her family and friends to keep her hopes high of leading a satisfying and happier life than before. Cognitive behaviour therapy in counselling is a very important part of recovery from depression. Please motivate her to do exercise based on her age and ability. Encourage her to meet people and maintain social relationships. She should also engage in some meaningful and satisfying hobbies.
