    Her coworker decided to be an asshole last night and she spent most of the night crying, and today she worked herself up into a deeper depression, and has gone incommunicado.

    The worst thing you could do right now is try to force her to talk. As the others have said, just be prepared to listen.

    I went through a bit of a personal break down, people who tried to get to close or "help me" made me feel worse even if their intentions were good.

    I wanted to talk but knew no one would really understand how I felt. Honestly I just needed to be alone because that is how I felt.

    The person who helped me the most was just there for me emotionally when I needed her but never too invasive or pushy when I went quiet.

    So my advise would be the same as Anja's, just be there, don't try to be helpful with advice or suggestions, just be a friend who doesn't expect her to get better as quickly as they would in that situation because it could take her awhile to process all the pain she is feeling right now.
