  • Depression and Suicide
  • Causes of Depression
  • What you can do as a friend to help
  • Hey man, everything will be alright, let's talk about it .
  • I'm just not feeling it anymore... I just want to end everything
  • Depression and suicide can be directly related. Depression itself differs from normal sadness because Depression is a strong mood involving sadness, discouragement, despair, or hopelessness that lasts for weeks, months, or even longer, according to an article by kidshealth.org.
  • What Professionals can help
  • This could affect anybody and teens especially because of all the stresses put on them during their teen life. Some signs of depression include negative feelings, negative moods, low energy or motivation, poor concentration, social withdrawing, and also physical problems. Depression can directly lead to thoughts of suicide as a way to get out of what is thought to be an inescapable situation. Many teens say that they have attempted suicide because it was the only way out of a situation or to get relief from a stressful situation, also according to kidshealth.org.
  • Depression and the future
  • You can help in many ways as a friend when you know someone might be in danger of harming themselves. First off, never be scared to ask them about suicide. Many people think that if they were to ask, this would plant the idea of suicide into them, this isn't true and it's always a good idea to ask. Talking to someone that is also close to them might also be a good choice because if you tell someone like their parents, it is most likely that their parents will care and take action. Make sure you do not keep it a secret, even if you've sworn to keep it a secret, because this could mean life or death for them. You can also contact some like a school counselor because they are required by law to help people in harms way. According to "My Friend Is Talking About Suicide. What Should I Do?", you should always listen to your friend and make sure not to keep it a secret.
  • Conclusion

According to the articles "Getting Help for Intense Grief", "School Counselors", and "Going to a Therapist", these professionals include, counselors, teachers, doctors, nurses, coaches, or religious leaders, and also your parents or family members can also help you out too, because chances are they care for you.
