Hi @Macska, welcome and thank you for reaching out to the forums to tell us what is going on for your daughter. I am sorry to hear that your daughter has been having a hard time with bullying and friendships. It sounds like a lot for your daughter to be going through, and a lot for you as a parent as well. I can see how much you love her and how heartbreaking it would be for you to see her going through these things.
It is never a nice feeling to be sent snapchats of an event that you were not included in, I imagine that this could make a young person feel really hurt and isolated. How did your daughter respond to receiving those snapchats?
I can definitely understand how the pandemic would have been an especially tough time for a young person experiencing depression and troubles with friendships. Was there anything that your daughter enjoyed during this time that you noticed lifted her mood at all?
I was wondering if your daughter has ever spoken to a professional about her depression, such as a psychologist or counsellor? If she isn't seeing anyone at the moment, do you think that it might be something you and your daughter would be open to explore? A few possible starting places could be a GP, school counsellor, Kids Helpline , eHeadspace or the ReachOut's youth forums .
ReachOut also has some articles for parents on tips for supporting your teenager with depression here , and Raising Children Network also has some helpful information here , in case you'd be interested in having a read through.
I wanted to also point out that it is really nice to see what a caring parent your daughter has to support her through what she is going through. What an amazing strength for a young person having a hard time
