Friend needs support system, has none.
So a friend of mine is in generally shaky emotional/mental health, and it's been problematic recently. I don't think she has much of a support system at all. There's me, and I do what I can, but I cannot be a whole support system alone.
I'm going to be having a conversation later to day to hopefully help her plan some steps to to start building one that works. My question is this. She suffers from probably depression, if not then perhaps SAD. I'm trying to do some reading, but it would be really helpful if anyone here who suffers or knows someone who suffers from this sort of condition could give me any insight as to what kind of support system you might have, what steps you might take to build or fortify it, what you need from it, etc.
Anything to help me prepare myself for this conversation. I'm not completely uninformed about this, but I feel like something needs to happen in the affirmative as immediately as possible, so I would love to be prepared when I walk in.
