Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the question.

I have gone through your question and I can understand what you are going through and I appreciate your willingness to seek professional help.

First I would like to discuss why she may be behaving the way she is.

Your sister-in-law, as you have mentioned misbehaves with her parents, and she doesn't have friends and her brothers don't talk to her. She fights over small things, she runs away for no apparent reason.

Looking at all this, I wonder what could be causing her to behave in such a way, the possible reasons are,

1. Stress (family, society, studies).
2. Any physical condition/health issue that is preventing her from making friends or interact with other people.
3. Depression.
4. Abnormal thoughts and visions.
5. Any mental illness.
6. Any form of abuse (Present or past)

It is difficult to understand exactly what is going on without actually talking to her, we need to know what she feels, and why she has to do what she does.

I can only empathize with her, because I suspect something is seriously wrong otherwise people do not act as she does.

The best you can do is to somehow take her to a psychiatrist and get to know the real reason behind her irrational behaviour.

Most important is, how you interact with her. (By you I mean the entire family). You need to build trust by listening to what she says, and you need to be careful what you say. I understand that is quite difficult to do, but if she has some problem and no one is listening then just imagine what she must be going through.

I request you to take her to a psychiatrist before she does something wrong.

Once we know the reason why she is behaving the way she is, then an appropriate step can be taken to remove whatever is causing the problem.

I sincerely hope you can understand the gravity of the situation and will do the needful.

I hope this information is of help to you. Please do write back if you have any more questions or doubts.

Wishing you all good health.
