Suffering From Depression

Asked by on with 1 answer:

I’m quite sure, if not positive I’m suffering from depression. I’ve tried talking to my parental guardian, but they don’t believe it’s true. I think that they only WANT to believe I’m not depressed. (From Australia)

As you list your age as 13 I would talk to your school counselors and teachers — they can help you. Let them know how you’re feeling and they can make sure you get the help you need.

Wishing you patience and peace,
