These symptoms at the age of 15 years indicates distressing childhood or some problems at school. Try to become best friend with your daughter. Try to find out Insecurities in her mind by talking to her. Good psychologist can also help. Most importantly make her feel loved and wanted. And be careful if she has suicidal thoughts. Try find out if she has any problem at school. Ask her about any sexual abuse she has faced.
