Thank you for reaching out to us here- it sounds like this has been a really difficult time for you and your family and my heart is with you all today I'm really sorry to hear what has happened, I can imagine that it would be very overwhelming to find out a report has been made without your knowing and input.
It looks like you might be joining our forums from outside of Australia. We can't offer legal advice here, but it sounds like speaking to someone who is able to support you around the legal aspect may be helpful. Is there a local service you can speak to and get more information about what this means for you and your family? I know in Australia we have legal aid which is a free service, is there something similar where you are?
You mentioned that your daughter has been in hospital in the last year for her mental health, I can imagine that would have been really hard on your family. Have you got some support (either professionals or personal supporters) for you so you have somewhere you can talk about how you are feeling right now?
From what I can hear, it sounds like you have really been doing everything you can to support your daughters recovery with keeping her appointments going, monitoring her and making sure she is on her medication. How is your daughter managing the news that her friend filed the report?
Thinking of you today Let us know how you go and if you want us to help you find some supports in your area that can help you through this time

I am sorry to hear your family is going through such a hard chapter. I am not sure what a 51a is but I hope you have some support around that for you and your family.
I understand how difficult it is as a parent to have a child with depression and anxiety. My daughter has been hospitalized 4 times this past year. This takes most of my time and energy. It leaves little for me to give to the rest of the family. Some days I feel like just putting one foot in front of the other is all I can do.
My heart and support goes out to you. We are here to listen and please take care of yourself too in this stressful time.
