Susanne and Alexandra are partners for their science project in school. Susanne feels frustrated because Alexandra has been absent from class
a lot in the last week. “Where have you been? I heard you were sick,” Susanne inquires. Alexandra replies, “I haven’t been feeling well. My parents think I’m
depressed. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I just don’t feel like I can do anything anymore.”

Susanne gently answers, “I’m sorry. Is there anything I can do to help?” Alexandra looks off into space and states, “I don’t think there is anything anyone can do to help. I’m not really sure any of that matters, anyway. I understand if you want to get a new partner for the project. I’m sure I won’t be able to do much.”

Which parts of the conversation sound to you like a cry for help?

Everything Alexandra is saying sounds like trouble :whistle: I honestly don't know what to do in this kind of situation besides pray a lot and try to encourage them/be the best friend to them as possible, which might mean introducing her to Jesus if she doesn't already know Him...

Take heart cause You're with me
So let the stars drop,
Whatever comes I'll be ready
You keep me steady

I've felt that way before, and all of it is a cry. I often wanted to do just what that girl is doing and get some help but I bottled it up inside. It was a good thing that Jesus knew what was in me or I might not be here today. So definitely all of it is asking for help.
Sometimes we worry,
Sometimes we fret.
Sometimes we feel like
We can't move a step.

But God is still with us.
Keep Him in mind.
Trust in Him alway.
He is ever so kind.

Oh and I'm not depressed anymore. The Psalms helped a lot.

I agree with mknz. Everything she said sounded like she was going down a wrong path. I think the best thing to is to shower her with Christian love and encouragement (and telling an adult wouldn't hurt either).
