Thanks for writing in.
First thing to do is check if her thyroid
problem is under control. Thyroid disorders sometimes present with depression
. Once the thyroid disorder is treated, the depression might get cured. Another thing you can do is tell her to do regular exercise 5 days a week, as exercise releases endorphins in the body which might make her feel good.
Also tell her to sign up for yoga
or relaxation classes which will help her to relax, and might relieve her from depression.
Hope this helps.
