Cabinet sagging :(

I noticed the other day that the end of our kitchen cabinet is sagging on the end
When dh looked at it he said that they screwed down into the cabinet from the ceiling before they put roof on so there is no way to jack it up and tighten the screws. But he said we can put a dowel or metal support rod between the counter and bottom of cabinet to keep it up there.
When we first got this there was dowel there but we thought because he had installed a under the cabinet coffee pot that the dowel was there to support the weight so we took out the pot system and removed dowel. Um feeling kinda dumb lol.Thank God I have virtually no weight on the end.
Here's a couple pics to help any advise would be appreciated! the sagging is at the top of cabinet above the buck

Is there anything above the ceiling? I noticed it is close to the vent so there may be a 2 by framing the vent. Is a piece of angle screwed into the ceiling then into the side of the cabinet. Use a strip of wood to cover the angle. Maybe. Just thinking.

It may be possible to pass a section of wood through the vent. Remove the duct work connected to it and slide the wood over the top of the cabinet ( in the ceiling), close to the drooping end and then screw the cabinet to the wood.

Verify ceiling strength first. If new brackets are not attached to a truss, 1/4 inch decorative paneling won't support the cab.
