Any adult or friend you trust. All the listeners here on 7 Cups are all here for the same reason: to help you.
You can talk to someone you trust and you know that can help you, a psychologist or psychiatrist and also you can talk to 7 cups of tea's listener.
talk to a doctor or any trusted adult like a teacher, family friend or school therapist.
I would talk to the person (or people) who you feel the most comfortable talking to about your depression and who you feel would understand you the best. This could be a trusted family member, a good friend, or really anybody you trust in your life. This doesn't necessarily have to be someone you know in real life, but can also be a trusted online friend that you feel comfortable discussing your feelings with. You may even find it beneficial to simply anonymously chat with a listener on here that specialises with depression (which you can easily find via browse listeners when you adjust your search options). Do note it can take a few tries to find a listener you really connect with, but don't give up! You will find the best listener, or listeners for you. :) You can also benefit from talking with a licensed therapist about your depression if you desire and are able to. I know the feeling of depression is frustrating, and it can be hard to open up about how you are feeling. But remember, you are not alone. :) The options I have mentioned are just a few. So choose what works best for you and what you feel most comfortable with.
you can talk to your close friends or parents. If can also visit a counselor . But along with the counselor do tell your loved ones they will help you get out of it
You can talk to us about your depression but if it gets out of control it is better to seek a professionals help at that point.
You should talk to a specialist like a psychological counselor or therapist about depression as they would be able to help you.
People who are close to you, who you trust, and who you feel comfortable with can be great resources. Listeners on 7 Cups are always there for you too. Finally, if you have the resources and are ready to reach out, a therapist can be a great partner and asset.
Any of your family members ,friends and me (:
I myself usually talk to someone I trust other than a friend. I'm not to comfortable bringing this kind of stuff up to my parents.
The most important thing is to talk to someone but it really depends on your situation. Being here is already a start. A good friend or a close family member can also be a good option and if you are at school a teacher can also provide the help needed.
You can talk to your parents, trusted guardian or friend, school counselor, therapist/psychologist, and you could even come on 7cups!
I, and many listeners on here, are willing to help you with whatever you need to talk about. I promise that we will do our best, especially since most of us can empathize.
You can talk to anyone you trust. It could be a doctor, your parents, siblings, close friends, anyone on 7cups, ect.
A trusted friend,a adult you feel comfortable with, and anyone online I think its better to talk to someone you don't know then someone you know.
7CupsofTea Listeners are here for you. But, I think its still advisable to talk to your family and friends first. Then if things got more serious, ask a professional therapist or Psychologist.
You need to talk to yourself first. Grab the reasons. Connect with your hear and soul. But it's so hard to when you're depressed. But there are people who always are ears to listen to you. Might be your friends, your parents, a therapist (if you like) or your well wishers like us Talking about it will surely help. It may not vanish the depression at once but eventually, you'll feel the support.
You can talk to anyone you trust. It can be a family member, a friend, or a teacher. You can also come here to 7 cups and talk to the great listeners we have here. Your family doctor is always somewhere good to go as well as looking into seeing a therapist in your area.
A listener on 7 cups is a great place to start! Personally, I'm always more than happy to talk to anyone dealing with depression, because I know how hard it can be. If you have a best friend, roommate, or parent that you are considering reaching out to, odds are they are going to be more than happy to help you, too. Sometimes it's hard to reach out for help with depression, but most of the time the person you reach out to will be there to support you. You're not alone.
Anyone you feel comfortable talking to about it, friends, mom, aunt, brother, or teachers anyone that can help you
A counselor or therapist are great options. If you cannot afford them, you can talk to a trusted friend or family member.
The best person would be your mum or dad. They can then take you to see a doctor and the doctor can refer you to a professional.
Of course it´s good if you have someone you trust that can support you and understand you in your family or some friend, but for my experience the best way is to talk to a psychotherapist that will help you with his/her knowledge about this problems and will guide you to a higher level of knowledge about yourself and of course will help you to understand the causes of your depression, will first of all understand you and will make you feel like you´re nt alone, then he will help you to overcome depression, it´s a slow path, but is a deep path in yoursef that will bring you out the real you. I recommend to go to a psychotherapist to everyone!!! But if you don´t have the opportunity to go to a therapist you can tell about how you feel to a counsellor in your school or to a trusted friend or to your parents or relatives....anyway talking about depression always help, You´re strong even if you ask for help, trust me!
I suggest speaking with someone you really trust and are close with. if your family is supportive, speak with them as well when you feel more comfortable with it. You might never feel entirely comfortable with it, but you might need support if you ever decide to seek professional help.
You can talk to anyone who you trust. A family member or close friend, or a councillor at school. If you prefer a more anonymous conversation then 7 cups is a great place to talk to people! Talking about depression is hard but so important for recovery.
You can talk to your family, friends and even seek professional help if that is something you're interested in. Talking to someone you feel safe and comfortable with is a good place to start :)
First of all, I would suggest talking to your parents, a family member, or close friend. If you can't talk to any of them, then perhaps you could try a teacher or someone like that, that you hold in high regard and know you can trust. Then, there's always the lovely people on this site right here.
Talk to people. Yeah therapists,parents, friends but most importantly talk to yourself. Give yourself a break and think about your past and who you want to become. You can only lead the future, no therapist can move you towards the future.
I first would reach out to my parents, and also a guidance counselor. They are professional in what they do and they can be a very good source to explain all of your problems and they also give advice to fix most of these problems.
There a lot of adults in your life that you can talk to about depression. For me, I talked with my parents and they came up with a plan to send me to a therapist so I could talk to a licensed profession to help me with my mental problems. If you are not comfortable talking to your parents about your depression, you could talk to your friends or even your teachers at school. Yes, they are there to help you learn, but I am sure they would talk to you and help you find someone to talk to.
