Hi, I have gone through these upsets. If the doctor has checked for drugs and depression, then go into how the youth feels. Some people have been bullied in to doing things that are life changing ,so tell your youth how much you love them and how worried you are and how not one thing in this life could stop your love and understanding. Let that filter in for a bit then take your youth out for a treat and a chat.
Find a quiet park or beach to walk and talk, do not stare. Then no matter what comes out, be quiet and calm faced. Ask questions like "Is that all you are willing to say?" or "Do you need more time?" Be sure you have all the information before you offer advice or talk of examples. Be kind. No matter how much you hurt, this is about the youth not the parent.
I had a boy teen that had a health problem start showing only after the hormones climbed high. The doctors could not find it at that time, but now it is easier for them to detect. Love helps with all kinds of things but you must make the overwhelming steps.
