Doctor :   Since how many days are these symptoms noticed?
User :   3 months
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let me brief you.
Doctor :   Without an face to face examination and councelling, I can pinpoint the exact cause for her symptoms.
Doctor :   Yes, suicidal intentions are symptoms of severe depression.
Doctor :   However, if her symptoms have been a recent one, its probably few factors that may be triggering these symptoms.
Doctor :   Those factors need to be addressed too.
Doctor :   If her suicidal thoughts are severe and if she had attempted suicide, then she needs a psychiatric counselling immediately.
Doctor :   Hence my suggestion is that she consults a psychologist. A face to face counselling session will help her in the best way.
User :   i see
User :   ok, thanx a lot
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   no, im ok
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me. Bye for now.
