It can be very frustrating for a family member to see one of their close ones suffer from emotional problems and not accept that she needs treatment. This is getting increasingly common these days. However, there are steps that you can take to help convince your didi to meet a Psychiatrist.
First. do not criticise your didi. Do not try and convince her that she should talk and interact with neighbours and cousins who she doesn’t like.
Second, try and identify what it is that is hurting your didi. Is it fear, is it restlessness, is it anger or is it ghabrahat? Most commonly, it is fear and/or ghabrahat. Talk to your didi about this and advise her that despite all that is going on around her, there is a way her fear and ghabrahat can be overcome. Once that happens she can cope, with these people she doesn’t like, much more confidently.
Thirdly, talk to her about the things she wanted in life and try and present those as goals that she can re-aspire for, once she feels stronger and better.e.g. If she wanted to be a teacher, make sure you point out that taking a doctors help for concentration would help her become a better teacher than what she can become without help.
Once she agrees, speak to the Psychiatrist and give your perspective before your didi meets him. Let the Psychiatrist assess and then follow through with the treatment.
