Who Can You Talk To About Depression?
Don’t be scared to talk about it or ask for help.
Talk to a trustworthy adult: Talking to your Parents/Guardians, family, school counselors, teachers, coach, or mentor are great ways of receiving the help you need.
What Else Can I Do?
Journaling: Is a great way to articulate your thoughts and feelings the way you would to another person but to yourself.
Watching movies/TV and reading books: Watching film and television and reading books is one way to help you feel connected when you feel alone.
Drawing, painting, writing, etc: Bringing yourself to do proactive things such as drawing and painting when you are depressed can be tricky. Having an outlet through which to express those thoughts and feelings in a more abstract way can feel gratifying and instill confidence.
