I know it is pretty hard to talk about you depression online to a stranger. Just relax and tell the listener how you feel and what's going on in your life that makes you feel sad.

You can talk to a listener. We will listen to you and support you. You can also speak to other professionals online, If you are located in the UK you can speak to Samaritans.

Depression has become more open now. People are more aware it exist's and the stigma is slowly going away. There will always be trolls. But the power to ignore it is a first step and open up

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.

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.

You may find it helpful to simply chat with listeners here on 7 cups. We are always eager to listen to your present concerns, and I, myself, would love to listen

Well, on 7cups there are special chat rooms set aside for depression specifically. Also, you could try connecting to a listener on here and talk to them.

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 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.

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.

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.

There are professional consultants and voluntary listeners like on the 7 cups, who would be glad to talk with you or rather listen to what you have to say about your depression.

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!

You can talk to any of the active trained listeners that are not trained therapists but are available for you to vent about your problems without the fear of been judged.

Trained listeners that at least have 5 star reviews on this websites. They are generally the best listeners you can discuss your problem with.

someone who is really not involved so that you will be comfortable. As well as his/her personal advice or assumptions won't mean to hurt you or making your situation even worst.

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.
