Dear sir/ madam, from your description it seems that this young lady needs continuous treatment.  Young people often find it difficult to talk to people in crowded settings.  Though Nimhans would be a great place to get help, you will probably have to see a private psychiatrist right now till she improves a bit. Also if the environment at home is too critical or too lenient  things can worsen. This could require some sessions as a family with a psychiatrist or a psychologist. You can explain the situation to the psych and ask them to give you a discount.
