We talked about that, and she said nothing like that had happened - but, she is multi-racial, and we live in a rural area that is not very progressive. I don't think there was anything explicit, but she may have picked up on attitudes exhibited by other students. I don't believe there has been any bullying or online bullying, though.

Hi again,

There may be something helpful for you in the links I'm posting below.
It's been a very long time since I was in your situation with my children now grown, however I understand how worrying this must be for you.

Hello sepper37 and welocome to NeuroTalk.

Have you brought this current problem up with her Therapist? If not please do so. Your daughter might speak more freely with her Therapist than with you, her parent.

Transitioning to High School can be very difficult for the a majority of Freshman. It is such a change from the lower grades and can cause anxiety, depression, fear and a very uncomfortable feeling about attending school.

Just a FYI in case you are unaware:

Many of the medications that are used to treat Mental Health issues (anxiety, depression, ect) come with warnings. These medications for some children and adult can cause suicidal thoughts. If you feel your daughter is getting worse it would be a good idea to have her seen by her Psychiatrist or whom ever prescribed the Prozac, asap.

Information about Prozac:

Best wishes

Default Bullying doesn't seem to be a cause

We've asked about that, as have her doctor, therapist and guidance counselor. I don't think there is any overt bullying, but she is multi-racial, and we live in a rural area that is not at all progressive. She has mentioned that some students have made racial remarks, not necessarily at her, but she overheard them.

I agree with the others ideas. If nothing else find other things
that she can do in activities around the town. Also go to the school
and get the work she is missing. Till such a time you can get
her back there.

There is not a easy answer for any of this.
