My friend needs help

 
I have a friend who is in denial. She needs therapy, but she says counseling is for messed-up kids. We tell her she needs to talk to someone, but she says she is fine and tries to change the subject. How do I get her to talk?

 

Dear Friend in Denial,

Sometimes, girls write about friends who are sexually abused or pregnant or starving themselves or otherwise in dire straits; other times, they write about friends who are just living their lives their way. I don’t know whether yours in truly “in trouble” or is just grappling with adolescent angst, but I do know she needs true friends – not a group of people breathing down her neck. So be the caring person you are, and consider informing a trusted parent or teacher who can be objective about the situation.
