Solution

Sujata is showing symptoms of depression and anxiety such as sadness, withdrawing from family/ friends, and social activities. The ALGEE model can be used.
(i) Approach, assess and assist in any crisis - Behavioural changes are very noticeable in Sujata. I can voice my concern to the teachers/ counsellor of the school or to her family members.
(ii) Listen in a non-judgemental manner - I will try to meet Sujata in the library or any place where she feels comfortable. I will explain my concerns to her about not interacting with others and the overuse of mobile phones. I will listen patiently and compassionately.
(iii) Give support and information- Let Sujata know that she has emotional support of her friends. There is nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of. She should hence be forthcoming about her problems.
(vi) Encourage her to get professional help - I will encourage her to meet the college counsellor who will be able to help her professionally. (v) Encourage self-help strategies - This will help Sujata to regain control over her life. Some positive measures include breathing exercises, yoga, laughter therapy, etc.
