When your friend gets out, please tell her to be positive that she can get through this. The same thing that got her into that situation, negative frame of mind, can cause her to slip back into it, as she may be looking for reasons to fail rather than reasons to succeed.
Tell her about the resources at the top of the list of posts on this forum.
Stay talking to her, she's going to need help when she gets out. If you see her slipping, remind her again about positive, and give her tips on what she can do, reminding her of her appointments and taking her medicine and good meals.
Maybe encouraging her to get out, volunteering at a dog kennel by walking dogs, or at a hospital or a library or a senior citizens home, get her to thinking about other peoples problems, you know, like those dogs'.
Maybe you can take walks with her and talk to her on the phone or e-mail.
Something got her down. Try to intervene. Well, you've already done that.
