Question for caregivers: does your loved one suffer from depression post injury?

My daughter can’t seem to be happy at all. She’s struggling with working, sleeping, and feeling like she has no friends. She seems to be sad more days than not. I want to help! She lives 3.5 hours away from me, but calls me daily telling me how bad her life is. I have tried to get her to move home so that I can help her manage her finances and help her to get back on her feet, but she is not willing to do that. How do I help? Is this a permanent side effect of the brain injury? Is she a victim of circumstance? She didn’t qualify for disability, and she struggles with her jobs. I’m at a total loss on how to help her. I have suggested finding a counselor (therapist) to talk to, but she doesn’t seem interested in that. I just want to help her. If anyone has any suggestions, they are greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!
