Generally it?s a good idea to deal with friends directly if possible. However, if you know she will not discuss this with you or listen to you then talking with her mother makes sense. You have various options such as two or three of you talking to her mother so you are not seen as the only one who is concerned or asking that the mother treat this information confidentially as you do not want to jeopardize your friendship. Sometimes a form of caring is doing something that a friend may not like at the time but in the long run is wise. Good Luck!
