How do you mend a broken heart?

I recently came across someone who was very depress. She didn't want to talk, eat, etc all she wanted to do is sit in front of the window and watch the day go by. It is very sad watching this person slowly drifting away from this world and not being able to help. I was told by someone that to mend a broken heart one must find the source that created it in the first place. Is that true? So, I have to go seek out the person that raped her? I have to go find the her ex that dump her because of something that is not her fault? Do I try to get to the root of her trouble or is it a lost cost? It seems as though the harder I try the frustrated I get. I know it's not her fault but it just gets me so angry but I don't want to give up on helping her be herself again.

Be a friend, someone to which she feels she can trust no matter what happen. Let her cry, shout if needed to release her anger and sadness inside. Let her know and feel loved. If she doesn't to talk about something don't insist... just let her know that if ever she feels free to talk you are always there to listen and understand. Sometimes asking someone of something they don't want to talk about creates a gap. They well feel free to talk if you had gain their trust.

That is very true. I will do that and yes I will open my heart to gain her trust in me. I love to have my friends be happy and if they are sad I want to be there to help them through it as well. Friends are there to help shoulder the pain and that is what I will do. Thank you for your comment...
