Answer: As a parent, I think we should always listen to that little voice in our head or those feelings that tell us that everything may not be as it seems. A good first step may be to talk with your daughter and let her know that you noticed that she seems to be feeling a lot better and ask if she knows what is helping her to feel that way? Also if your daughter is currently being treated by a therapist (or even if she is not) you may want to contact a therapist about the change- In some very depressed individuals (especially those who have struggled with suicidal thought) a sudden positive mood and outlook can be a sign of a heightened suicide risk. When in doubt it always good to trust your instincts and ask questions.
