FAQ a space to ask questions about mental health

  2. Answer:The first thing I think you should do is tell your parents and have them contact her parents after you make it to her house and are in her presence. Call other friends and family members and have them meet you there.Once you are there, call the hot line in her presence and tell them that a friend that you love is considering suicide and that you need to know how to tell her that you love her and want her in your life always.

    • u need to call the suicide hotline urself. ask them how u can get help for her. they'll probably tell u to tell her parents.

    • This is a rough situation. I went through this last year with 2 of my friends up at the exact same time. There's not much you can tell her. You can assure her that you're her friend, that you love her, and that you'll help her in anyway possible, and try to convince her to go to counselling for help. However, the BEST thing you can do is tell her parents - I know she'll be angry with you at first and she'll feel betrayed, but in the end she'll end up thanking you for doing it. Good Luck. :-)

  3. How do I help my friend going through depression?
  4. Answer:Be there to listen. Make conversations about what they're going through, easy and open.Choose when to talk. Accept their condition.Get informed.Encourage them to get help.Back down if they aren't ready.

    • Find things to keep her occupied. Get her to do things such as write, draw, paint, read, play an instrument, anything that can distract her. Best of luck to you :)

  5. How to get rid of depression?I'm so sick and tired of being depressed but i cant seem to get out of it. I dont know how it would feel to live my life without depression.
  6. Answer:Depression is like a silent attacker that can attack on your nerves anytime without letting you know that you have become the victim of depression.Do some exercise, listen to some cool music, switch off the lights and enjoy sunlight,take help from animal existence.If you are not allergic of animals and you can get easy access to animal then don’t waste time and spend your time with any animal because the existence of these animals that might be cat or dog makes release a hormone known as oxytocin that is released only when we fall in love, nursing or give birth. This hormone produces goodwill feelings.

    • Do some volunteer work at your local SPCA and all of the depression will go away. Trust me, it will erase all thoughts of politics or anything else when you see all of these animals happy to see someone take them for a walk and give them some treats..
