You could talk to a councellor or your doctor to help you. Also don't be afraid to talk with your close friends or family members. Don't be scared of judgement! They will understand.

you could approach any psychologist/counsellor to seek the right kind of direction to take towards healing. if you know close friends who suffer from it and got over it, you could talk to them as well.

It really depends on how close you are to your family and friends. Parents, school counselors, trusted adults, older siblings, or a therapist are good options!

I honestly think that you can only talk to someone who understands what you're going through. But as well your parents or friends to get advice on how to deal with this.

You could always talk to your parents, teachers, people you trust, or a therapist. As long as they are a trusted adult.

There are many listeners right here on 7cups. Just search for the topic you want to talk about with a listener and people comfortable talking about that subject will appear.

If you want to know more about depression, you can talk to a school psychologist or counselor, your doctor, your parents, or research online.

You could try to talk to a good friend that you trust or a teacher. I always talk to my cousin when I feel down or anger so don't think that you cant talk to your family they will always look out for you. Also counselors and the members of 7 cups are great people to talk to.

there are a lot of resources online that can help you understand depression better, like its symptoms, treatments and how it affects the chemicals in the brain. you can also talk to the listeners on here to get a better grip on it. But if the symptoms affect your daily life i suggest meeting with a therapist. wish you all the best!

You can talk to so many people about depression. Think if you had a broken arm...who would you talk to about your broken arm? Who would you tell what happened to your arm? Depression is the same. Talk to friends, your teacher, your principal, your pastor, your brother, your dog, your parents, your sports coach, your sister. Anyone! You can even reach out to 7Cups and we can talk about what is going on. If you feel in immediate crisis you can also call the suicide hotline 1-800-273-8255

Of course, some listener on 7 Cups. It's also good to say it some professional or a good friend. Talk about it with someone you trust in and be honest and not ashamed.

You can talk to one of us Listeners, or you can talk to a trusted friend or adult! You should bring it up with an adult if you feel you can trust them so you can get help you need in case it gets bad, but it's always good to also have a friend to talk to.
