What do we do?

There are me and three others in a group at school. I have spoken to one of them (my best friend) today as we are extrememly worried about her health.She doesnt eat properly, doesnt have periods and we have noticed her hair is starting to fall out in places. When i talked to her about it today she said that she's fine and nothings wrong. We're not sure now what to do as its much more serious than she will admitt.
Her mum and her rarely talk so we cant talk to her as they just argue. Her sis is away at uni and so we dont know where to turn?

WHAT SHOULD WE DO NOW?! <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    It could be a number of things, but it sounds like an eating disorder or a serious hormone problem.

    Perhaps you could speak to a teacher or the school nurse, who could then speak to her Mum. Either way, it would be a good idea if she went to see a doctor becuase she sounds very ill.

    I would say to go to a teacher as well. I know you only mean it for the best, but it can be hard, when friends point out stuff to you. She will be glad that you have noticed at some point, but maybe she feels as if she is getting attacked, even though I am sure that you mean it in the nicest way. But as she is probably insecure about it allready, I guess it just adds to the fuel.

    I think that a teacher she likes, will be able to talk to her and her mom (or at least try), which (I hope) will resolve in her seeing a doctor. Good luck.
