At this age depression is quite common. She need to undergo thorough medical exam and certain tests before a conclusive diagnosis can be made and to rule out any pathology. But in the mean time you should ensure that she is having good company because most of the time it is loneliness which causes depression. She must share her feelings with someone who is close to her.
