I feel my work as my personal mission and I love it. My work with clients is nonjudgmental, supportive. I am a very good listener. I use several approaches. Amo il mio lavoro.

Your guidance counselor or a professional. You should contact a therapist or a psychiatrist if you're feeling depressed!
Your family, friends, teachers, co-workers, manager, professionals, anyone. You can literally talk to this about anyone. The best bet is a doctor and also a counsellor.
People to talk to about depression could be parents or guardians, older siblings, school counselors, or even a trusted adult outside of the family.
I never had anyone to talk to. That's when i realized that the only person that's always there was the voice within myself, the one who told me I was worthless, that there was no hope for me. Having realized that, instead of fighting back or running away from it, I accepted the fact that he is me and will always be with me. I started writing my thoughts and my emotion in a small notebook as if I'm talking to myself. That was a way for me to release all those emotions bottled up inside and to calm the demon inside me. Now that I've felt better, sometimes when I'm down, I still open that notebook and write a couple lines.
To figure out why the hell i am depressed and how can i get any better, ti let it goo, it's hard to keep it in.
You can talk to Family, Friends your GP/Doctor, Anyone you trust. You can also connect to a listener who you trust.
I talk to the people I love and trust. I talk to those who I know will help me and understand. If I need to, I will talk to a professional. Talking to someone is important and can make others more aware what you are going through.
I talk to depression to close family members or a professional therapist because they are well versed in the subject.
When I am in need for someone to talk to/get things off my chest, I go to my partner and my parents. However, when I am seeking professional help, I talk to my doctor/psychiatrist.
You can talk to one of your closest friends. Parents. A counceller. Guardian. Teacher. Anyone you trust.
Therapists and very close friends, but only ever people who I know I am not burdening and can handle what I tell them.
If you have depression, there are many people you can turn to for support. Your friends and family play an important part of your support however if you're not comfortable turning to them then there are other people out there who can help. Your GP or Doctor is usually a good idea to discuss this with as they can suggest further support and treatment to you if you need it. Psychiatrists may be useful to you as well if you are comfortable with seeing one.
I think there's no rule when it comes to finding the right person to talk about depression. The most important thing is to find someone you can trust to. Remember, your trust might get betrayed. But eventually you'll find someone who is willing to listen to you and also to keep a secret and to give you words of support. If you think you don't have someone like that in your life, you can always come here on 7Cups where listeners like me are waiting to give you support and compassion.
You can talk to anyone about depression. People close to you, teachers, professional help. Or anyone here on 7 cups!
i talk about it with my friend. because i feel comfortable with her, and i know she won't judge me and she'll understand. I think it's very important to share about this thing with the people you trust. so you don't have to keep it all in your head and feel more depressed
Someone who you know will not judge you and someone you are completely comfortable with. For each person there is a different person who they choose to open up to: it could be a close friend, a partner, a parent or a schoolteacher. Talking is the first step of progress
If you have any close friends, I find that they are usually the best people to talk to about these kind of things. They are close enough to you so they know you well, however, unlike your family, they are not with you 24/7, meaning you have time to gather your thoughts before speaking to them
No one. I'm introverted. I cry it through when no one's around. Write my feelings on a paper and burn them,
If you wanted to talk about depression it would be a good idea to talk to a professional. You can go to http://www.adaa.org/finding-help, which is the site for the anxiety and depression association of America, here you can locate a therapist near you, and get support from others experiencing the same thing. Hope I've helped.
I talk to my friends, mother,sister ,anyone whom i can be open with without getting judged. I always have the option of seeking help from listeners here at 7 cups,anyways.
A therapist, a co worker and a out patient group at a hospital are several people I currently speak to about depression. I use to talk to my boss and team lead but my contract was over , it was not renewable because I was no longer a student this I don't work there anymore
You can talk to a close friend, a family member, a listener on here, or also a therapist. All of these are people who you can talk to about depression.
A couple of family members growing up were incredibly helpful, several of my family have struggled with depression themselves, and I also has a couple professional counsellors that were great.
1) Talk to someone who you feel has direct control over being able to change your situation. If they do not immediately help you change your situation, they will be able to direct you to someone who can. 2) Talk to a friend who can comfort you. 3) Talk to somebody (anybody) who can listen to you. 4) Talk to a third-party. They will usually perform at least one of the following things: a. Counsel you b. Comfort you c. Advise you of something else you can do to get your mind off whatever is causing your depression d. Offer you an alternative solution to your problem(s) e. Offer you a renewed perspective to your problem(s) f. Speak some hard truth into you to help you deal with your perceived problem(s) - rare ocassions
Anyone you feel comfortable around and can trust. People such as close friends or family can be good, but if you want someone more seperated from you personally, counselors, teachers, or a family friend are good options.
I honestly talk to nobody i just write my feelings and thoughts down i dont like expressing myself to others
You can talk to anyone about depression! Everyone knows how it feels to be sad, and even your best friend could help you cope for the time being. You can also come to 7 Cups so we can help you with the depression and even go to a therapist for depression. You're not alone.
The ones you may feel more comfortable speaking to and those who would most likely be the most helpful are those who can help from experience as they understand what it's like to go through your situation. It may also be helpful to see a professional such as a counsellor who will be able to give you advice. If you're looking to just talk about your issues though, please consider speaking with a Listener. You can browse the many profiles and choose your own based on their profile information. :)
You can talk about this to a close friend, a member of your family you are comfortable with, or a therapist. And you can come on 7CupsofTea for support ! :)
A good friend, a supportive family member, your dog, it can be anyone really -- oh, and a trained professional of course. But sometimes the most helpful person to talk to is You, yourself. Look in a mirror and have that much-needed conversation, or get a nice journal and fill it with your thoughts and feelings. Peace, Devin
