Hey, can you tell me how you're feeling right now? Talking to someone about your feelings can make you feel better. If you don't feel comfortable, then could you open up about how you are feeling with someone you trust like a family member, friend, or teacher? Alternatively, you might want to speak to Childline on 0800 1111, chat with a counsellor online, or send an email. Support and advice for feeling depressed can be found on here https://www.childline.org.uk/ . You can also find help and advice about how you are feeling on Young Minds https://www.youngminds.org.uk/ .

I personally believe it varies based on what works best for the individual.

For me, I find going out for walks (or just getting out of the house) helps a lot. Talking also helps me rationalise my issues and how I feel. It does come as a bit of a comfort to me knowing that there are people who are willing to listen and try and help. I don't take medication for my depression (or my other mental health issues), but I know some people who do and they feel it helps them. Like I said, it varies.

There's no right answer to that question. What works for someone else might not work for you, so you have to find your own way of dealing with these depressive feelings, which is a hard thing to do. Medication should be prescribed as a last resort, but if these feelings and thoughts are disrupting your day-to-day activities, then obviously seek a professional for advice.

Depression takes you to places that you don't wanna go to.
