If you feel you cannot get through to your friend, we encourage you to give her our contact information and ask her to reach out. You could also give us a call the next time the two of you are together to make she talks to someone.</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>If you are worried she is in immediate danger, please reach out for help immediately. It is important that your parents know you are dealing with this; it could also be helpful to talk to a counselor at school about your concerns. Supporting your friend is definitely not something you have to do alone. The more people who are there to support you means there are more people there to support her. It can be scary to reach out for help because we worry our friends will be upset with us, but it is better to have an angry friend than to lose that friend.</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Y</span><span>ou are a strong person and a good friend to help out your friend in her time of need.
