Depression
It has been 2 years since my father expired but mother has not been able to come out of that shock. She still longs for him and feels very lonely. She has suicidal thoughts when alone. We have already consulted two psychiatrists but the medicines do not suit her, what should I do?

Hello there, It is well expected for anyone to feel a strong loss in our lives when someone very close to us passes away (Grief). Different people take different amounts of time to recover from that loss. It would be beneficial for you to ensure that she is not left alone often. Try and keep her busy with something or the other. Take her out of the house at times and at other times keep her involved in the house. She can also join a support group or interact with other people her age or in neighbour hood so that she feels less lonely. Although she has lost someone important to her, she needs to feel that she still has family who loves her and would like to see her happy. So try rebuilding hope in her life.
Next Steps
Make sure she spends more time with family and friends engages in regular activities.

The symptoms you have mentioned are certainly of depression but as an aftermath of Bereavement after your father s death. As important medications maybe for treatment, so is therapy(counselling). Grief therapy is specific in her case.
Next Steps
I urge you to see a qualified psychiatrist who can do both aspects of management.
