If you want to pay for a therapist, there are sites online that you can find and use, but you'll have to pay for them. You can talk to people on 7cups as well, but you might not find the help that you need, just someone to lend you an ear when you need one. If you're seriously depressed and a danger to yourself, I suggest speaking with a close friend or family member about seeking therapy, as well as have someone offline who'll support you when you're going through rough times.
You can talk to a 7Cups member! We will always be willing to help. You can message a friend online, even an internet friend (just make sure you really who they are). If things become too difficult, you can call a crisis line. There are also numbers that you can text. Reaching out for help is not a bad thing. In fact, it shows how strong you are. I'm proud of you for trying to get better. You got this.
The best place to go is 7cups, honestly I came her for depression and lots of other things but I ended up being a listener. Best thing I could have done, I ended up helping so many people and I still am.
A trusted friend, parent or experienced listener on a website like 7 cups can be a great comfort. However, teachers, mentors and peers going through depression may also be able to give you insight and empathise with your situation like others may not. Sometimes it's difficult to talk about depression, or even give it that label, so take it slow. Start out by allowing yourself to feel less alone in the comfort of a friendly voice online, whether is be anonymous or somebody that cares about you and wants to be there for you. You don't have to jump into talking about things straight away if you're not comfortable with it. It's important that you trust and feel safe with whomever you're confiding in. Your feelings are valid and sacred, and it's important that you be treated with respect and care.
There are many professionals online and then there are also many support sites like 7 Cups of Tea. Often if you just go into the search bar and type in support sites for depression something useful will come up. Also going offline might help you to better ground yourself. For example talking to a real therapist or your friends or family could help. It will most probably be hard but it will help.
You can talk to people on 7 Cups! There are also many other therapy resources covered by many insurance companies. Telehealth for mental health is an increasing field. Check with your health insurance company to see if this is available to you.
You can talk to anyone on this website about your depression, and anyone on a suicide/depression online hotline. People with whom you feel will keep your depression a secret between you and them, and who take your condition seriously, are the people you should talk with. Many people here would be more than willing to talk with you about it!
Listeners and even your friends if you feel comfortable with it. I always go to 7 cups of tea when i feel like i cant go to anyone or i feel depressed They'res websites that have doctors to talk to. But never ever bottle it up.
You can talk to listeners , or join group support chats - we have a Great Depression support room that has weekly discussions on how to deal with depression too

You can talk to an active listener here on 7 cups of tea or a therapist. If you have facebook, there are plenty of support groups like anxiety, depression, self harm, ocd, bipolar, ptsd and adhd. There's plenty.
