    Sorry to hear that . Aren't there charities that help people with depression. But you should definitely speak to your parents about it first.

    In all honesty I feel so bad for her. Why these bullys got nothing better to do, I just don't get!

    I was bullied and developed clinical depression and trust me this is the worst thing anyone has to go through. She's lucky to have a brother like you who understands the sensitivity of the situation. None of my family members understood me as none of our known-to's has been through this and as of them it's a joke which is a shame. So I fought against this at my own and managed to get off my medication within a year.

    All I would say is don't let her feel that you're treating her differently or she's different to anyone who's not going through this. Do everything to keep her engage with people, don't let her sit alone at her own. Make jokes with her, cheer her up. See where her potential resides and polish on that. Try new things, things that she has never done before no matter how funny they sound- but obviously take her in your confidence and make her feel comfortable before trying something new. For example, I started cycling, gardening and other physical activities, that helped me alot. Go for tree climbing, keep her engaged in physical activities. This will boost up her serotonin levels. Serotonin being a happy hormone will make her happy and she'll stay positive.

    I'm sure you're a wonderful person and how you want to help her deserves an applause but at times it might seem hard, utterly pointless to give her hand and you might want to give up. But remember that's not her, it's those stupid emotions controlling her. Please don't give up, please don't leave her alone.

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have, good luck.
