Could Your Teen Be Depressed? Find out if your teen is at risk and how you can help. By. Nancy Schimelpfening.

Nancy Schimelpfening, MS is the administrator for the non-profit depression support group Depression Sanctuary. Nancy has a lifetime of experience with depression, experiencing firsthand how devastating this illness can be. So if your teen’s unhappiness lasts for more than two weeks and he or she displays other symptoms of depression, it may be time to seek help from a health professional. The Basics: Depression Feel.

Risk factors that can trigger or exacerbate depression in teens include: Serious illness, chronic pain, or physical disability Having other mental health conditions, such as anxiety, an eating disorder, learning disorder, or ADHD Alcohol or drug abuse Academic or family problems Bullying Trauma from. This article has been viewed 25,097 times. Depression is a common mental health issue, especially among teens.

As many as one in eight teens suffer from depression as a result of things such as peer pressure, academic expectations, and changes to their bodies. Excessive late-night activities, too much or too little sleep, trouble getting up in the morning, often late for school. Physical agitation or slowness, pacing.

If your teenager has a blood relative like a parent or grandparent who suffered from depression, bipolar disorder, or alcoholism, they are at a greater risk for depression. Having a family member commit suicide, or a generally dysfunctional family can also contribute to depression in teenagers. Avoid engaging in a power struggle. When your child is refusing to go to school, try to avoid getting upset.

This can escalate the situation and cause both you and your child stress—which is not a helpful headspace for a child already having trouble going to and/or staying in school. Validate how they must be feeling. According to medical experts, a teen will be diagnosed with depression if they demonstrate a persistent feeling of sadness and/or a loss of interest in their favorite hobbies/activities for the majority of the day, on most days of the week, within a span of two weeks. 6.

Not many research results make you sit up straight in your chair, but this one did. I’ve been tracking trends in the attitudes and behaviors of teens. Visit http://TED.com to get our entire library of TED Talks, subtitles, translations, personalized Talk recommendations and more.

  • Anybody if wanna talk, I’ll hear it out for sure. I have suffered too and ik how it feels. Comment here or dm me on instagram. It’s “freeetherapy”

  • It’s like peeling a potato with another potato and everyone’s like ‘god! Why don’t you just use a peeler?!?’ But instead of giving you one other many peelers they hand you another potato

  • Doctors telling my mum I have depression
    My mum: it’s probably because she needs to loose weight she is getting fatter these days!!

    AM I A JOKE TO YOU?!?! I’M SCREAMING FOR HELPPPPPP

  • I don’t need every person to help me. I don’t even need them to think it’s depression cause frankly I doubt it’s depression despite having all the symptoms and wanting to die and getting really regretful for making this comment. But at least I’m a lot more courageous on the internet then in real life. That’s why it seems like I can freely express myself. It’s because I don’t personally know anyone and there are people that may understand me. Better than in real life. Though I have people who love me a lot, I don’t think anyone understands me or if they do, they obviously don’t care enough.

    All I need is one person to see that I’m not fine and try and help. Not tell me because I have a good life that I have no reason to be crying. I can’t help it, okay? Though I’m not super sad all the time, the thought of suicide always lingers but either I’m too good at hiding it or no one cares enough.

    I just want no need one person. JUST ONE PERSON to see I’m not fine and help me get the courage to tell them how I feel

    ONE FRICKING PERSON. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR.

  • A lot of teenagers have killed the selfies because of other people, this is the worst feeling and I’m not just saying this depression has caused me and many others pain and this is nothing to joke about but remember someone out there loves you

  • my brother died a few years ago and he was my best friend
    since i’ve never slept and in school i’m either staring at the ceiling or crying

  • My mom: go away to your world where you’re the only peson.
    Me: my world has only me. They can’t comprehend myself. They don’t know how hard i tried. Yes, I’m a depressed person.

  • In this quarantine, we have nothing to do, we’re just playing our phones, video game, and others.
    But my parents took my ps4, ps4 is something that makes me happy in this fucking quarantine and they fucking took it from me.
    Well I don’t want to diagnose myself that I have depression, but they took something that makes me happy and always ignore me entire this quarantine, they just like don’t even care about myself:”(

  • I have three of these symptoms nobody might believe this but I shall say it anyways, this is my first time really telling anybody about this so please don’t hate… but I had suicidal thoughts at nine and up I’m 12 now and getting slightly better.

  • I really hope lots of parents see this and take note. I was depressed as a teen and actually told my parents that. They ignored it and brushed it off and said I wasn’t. I’m now in my 30s and have had 3 major depressive episodes in adulthood that I sort help from GP for.

    I try not to feel resentful of my childhood (teen years in particular) my feelings and memories over how my mental health was treated a a huge reason why I feel like my relationship with them is broken.

  • My BFF feel always feel depression I try everything but she still like that…
    I feel more sad listen to this song..
    I dont want her like this…

  • Parents say it’s the phone’s fault we are like how we are… If I didn’t have my phone, I don’t think I’d be alive rn. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my phone.

  • i.d.w.t.k.m.i.j.w.t.p.t.g.a=i dont want to die i just want the pain to go away. im putting this on my laptop google tab so my family know why im acting weird lately

  • I’d like permission to use this video in Mental Health lessons with teens in schools. Who do I contact to do so? You can send me details at [email protected] mbfpreventioneducation.org

  • Sorry mom and dad I’m gonna be going to heaven soon love you all.. If I survive I’m going to have to scream and cry every day because I’m alive I don’t wanna be okay anymore….

  • To myself: my skin is paper, cut it
    My face is ugly, change it
    No..I’m perfect..we all are..were depressed but that’s ok..at least we all love ourselves..

  • Bruh I got a sudden weight loss and they just got mad at me

    I’m trying my hardest to be on a positive mood even just now I hope for you to try as hard as you could you think something you don’t want

  • My depression said to die
    My anxiety said to doubt
    My self esteem said your not worth it
    But most importantly, my parents said it didn’t matter

  • I hate how everything that is on the list is what i am feeling right now…

    I never wanted to admit nor acknowledge that i have this signs.. I’m just going to think that this is just part of growing up. As i don’t want to grow up thinking i have this when im not sure.. i hate this feeling.

  • Take this kind of crapp down and maybe the kids will get happy again!!!!! My kid is six and he was singing this garbage the other day,all the kids are depressed….. he doesn’t even know what depressed is last thing I need is a loseer like this guy teaching my kid what depressed is. Argggggggg

  • I’m 17 and I feel like this for many reasons��…and unfortunately my parents forced me for many things sometimes I feel I wanna kill myself!

  • The main thing that started my depression was school. It wasn’t bullying or kids, it was simply just the bullshit work and teachers that stressed me out to the point of becoming depressed and suicidal and im sure many can relate

  • Grades are bad..I cry about 2 hours total a day..have a therapist.. doesn’t say anything to parents… thinks of hurting self.. thinks I’m totally fine

    Other girls in my grade: Sad for a day…OH NO THEY HAVE SEVERE DEPRESSION

  • Please someone talk to me. My family doesn’t care. I have no friends. And I can’t talk to a therapist because my parents won’t let me. I need help.

  • I think I might be depressed, and kinda wanna self harm again. Although I have been told it’s just hormones so I hope it goes away cuz I ain’t asking for help:)

  • I started crying when I realized I’m going through depression after watching this video of signs and I’m only 11 I was going through depression since I was 4. And yet I’m still going through it ������

  • Schools: Video games are the main reason on why depression is a thing.
    Parents: Agreed.
    Everyone with a brain density higher than 100: Not only you’re wrong, you’re stupid.

  • I’m currently 11 and have depression and I’ve had it since last year and I’ve thought about suicide honestly too many times bc I’m bullied in school way to often and I’ve been hurt and felt so much pain both physically and emotionally and I hate everything about it so much and I don’t know how I can stop it anymore…

  • all parents be like “all the kids have nothing on their mind they dont understand suicide and all those things all they do is just think about fairy tales and flying cars”
    what i actually think about:hmm i wanna die maybe sis will be happy hmm maybe if i get depression and die no one will notice yea ill sit tonight and see how will i get depressed more than i already am”
    what i actually do:play and get bullied online and irl play sad and songs about suicide”

  • “Talk to you’re parent’s”

    Parents:-Takes away phone and don’t let friends in-
    Me:TwT
    Parents:-Yell at me and blames everything to me-

  • Sometimes it’s too hard to live and it’s too easy to end our lives. We all know that. But hang on, my friends. It’s worth it. So fucking worth it.

  • I am suffering because of my parents and I am a teen ������������������������������������������������������������������������
    Wish I had a better life

  • I want my parents to see this. Im always failing school, i never like doing anything. I sleep a lot and sometimes either i eat enough to suppress my urge to eat or im not eating at all plus ive cut myself and all my mom said was”do u wanna end up locked in a padded room in the hospital cuz u know id be the first one to put u there” but she never asked me why even thou she knows im in my head putting myself down all the time

  • What parents say when you tell them:
    It’s your hormones
    It’s your dam phone
    No your not
    Why are you even sad
    Why didnt you tell me earlier
    ‘They never blame themselves’

  • I used to be an all A student from elementary school to middle school but now I have no interest in school and I cry myself to sleep or I’ll cry in a corner but my family is to blind to notice anything I feel like the world’s against me i haven’t ate for a few days and honestly i just wanna throw myself off a cliff sometimes

  • parents think we listen to sings and happily sing we listen relate cry about how everyone u love has ditched u and made u feel hated and how at the end of the day they say they love u

  • When I don’t tell what my true colors are, they’ll just say “Are you okay?” But when you told them who you truly are, they’ll just say “You’re so over dramatic!”

  • What if your adult son (27yrs) is deeply depressed? He has his own home, car and good paying job. He can function in this world, but I feel his depression is coming from still being single. I feel so helpless.

  • “All the kids are depressed” wanna know why? Its because everyone has changed. I dont know why but the connections we have been having with family, friends have just broke. Wanna know what they are feeling? Well heres the answer: kids have been feeling like there not good enough for this world, not only kids but teens and some adults. Here are some reasons why that happens, it happens because of divorce, lost friends, bullying, fake friends, drinkers, lost family, abandoned, abused, lost someone special, feels like their not good enough, being called names, gotten made fun of, forgotten, got fired, breaking up with someone they love, sexually assaulted, raped, parents make them feel like a letdown, cheated on. See what i mean? We need to change this world, please spread this with other people and stop suicide and depression. We have been losing some special people because of this feeling that people have, if you do these things please change to be a better person. This isnt what God taught us to do, we were taught good things. He belives in us, and i believe in you, i know we are all better than this so please.. make this world a better place. Remember we are all counting on you, thank you if you are reading this and starting to make changes i hope this would help others from commiting suicide. We all know sometimes life isnt fair and things dont really go your way. But please dont look into the past, you are loved, special and everyone loves you. You might have gotten bored about the word “love” but remember that love is the strongest thing in life, i dont think anything can beat it. So what im asking you is to please change into a different person and to make things good, just like the olden days. I hope you guys are all safe and have a great day! (PSA I did copy this, but in this comment this person said to spread this.. so i am! ty)

  • Hey I am a teenager myself and believe I may have depression yet I’m not sure what to do about it. I feel happy and then I will have a sudden fall. I have also found myself sleeping throughout the day and isolating from my family I am really not sure on what to do.

  • He’s not sad. Just negative and always complaining about something. He’s not into anything or desiring to be good at something. People don’t get him. I barely get him. Due to his his personality I can’t be too long with him, gives me anxiety, sadly. He doesn’t do helpful things in my home like cutting the yard but knows that I need help. I always feel he wished I didn’t ask anything from him. Maybe lazy. Not suicidal just self guilt, he’s not as high achieving like his siblings. Siblings very accomplished and well rounded. He’s responsible with his school work. I’m scared he’s not well liked by others, lacks social skills or social cues. Makes up excuses for shortcomings. Says the opposite of what he means or just uses wrong words to express himself. Which makes us, his family look at him and correct him. He used to stutter a lot. What will happen to him? What can I do? I’m watching videos on high functioning autism and Aspergers! Maybe this is just a personality disorder.

  • Hey guys, Im 13, I have all of these signs and Im not depressed at all, just because your sad and have have 3-5 of these dont just go around saying youre depressed without a diagnosis. Sure you can be sad but thats literally life and puberty, and once youll realize that youll see how much of a clown you look like in the future, if you were actually diagnosed I wish you the best of luck

  • Hello random youtube user scrolling through the comments! I hope you’re having a fantastic morning/afternoon/evening where ever you may be in this world of ours. Please, don’t forget to smile and don’t listen to the haters that may come your way they’re not worth your time or your emotional energy. Stay strong and remember that you are a beautiful person <3

  • I need help last year I had depression almost all twelve months.
    I thought about killing myself,but I also don’t want to because I wanna change people lives
    My other never thought how when she’s stressed it affects me
    Sometimes she says not knowing how hurtful it is.
    I know she facing problems but it’s also affecting me.
    I was able to handle it last year but this year I just can’t I feel like escaping.
    I’m thinking about talking to her but I don’t want her to think it’s just my goodness as a teenager.

  • I believe my young adult son is suffering from depression. Where do I start to get help for him? I don’t want to fail to get help for him so I need something that is a sure fit right away. Thanks in advance

  • i cut myself and no one notices. i stop eating no one notices. i sleep for more than half the day no one notices. i stop smiling no ones notices. but when i forget to do the dishes all hell brakes loose and i’m all of a sudden lazy and ungrateful

  • Hi! I just realized something right now and it suddenly changed my life. I just wanna share it to you (If you don’t wanna read it, it’s fine. I can’t really convince you to do what you don’t want to do). Do you realize that you only live once? That you’re only like that (Yes, you) right now? Do you realize that you will change after some time? One day, when you’re old, you will pass away, and get buried or cremated? Kinda sad, right? But wouldn’t you wanna be old and happy and you’re proud to say that you lived your life? That you were happy, you were young and loved every single moment of when you were younger. That you’re proud to say that you did everything you wanted? And you didn’t regret anything you did, you didn’t waste your time on something that wouldn’t be a good memory? When you’re old, don’t you wanna tell everyone how crazy your life is? Life is so short for you not to live it. I know we have to go through rough times because that’s what makes us stronger people and that will help us learn from our mistakes and not repeat them but when you get a chance to be happy, just take it because you deserve it. You know, you’re so lucky you’re alive right now, so many people die from diseases and sicknesses everyday that they didn’t wanna have. I understand that we all go though really rough times but that doesn’t mean that that rough time will cost you your life or it will stay all through your life, it does get better even if it seems like it won’t. So if you don’t wanna grow old and regret whatever you did when you were younger and you don’t wanna say that you didn’t do everything you wanted, go ask that person out, go on adventures, I know you’re at home so cook all the meals you wanna try out since you watch cooking videos (even if you don’t actually cook the food), watch all the movies you want, work out at home, listen to music, cut or dye your own hair, do crazy stuff even just at home. Hug your parents, grandparents and all the people you love because one day, they’ll also be gone. And any day can be your last day so live life. When you’re old, you’ll just remember that you did this, you did that, and you will live with all those memories ’til your last breath. Because when I’m old, I wanna be able to say, “I swear, I lived”. I know, maybe you think this comment is stupid but I just don’t want anyone getting old and not getting to enjoy their younger years… Thanks for reading this though (if you got this far), and I hope you have a good life. I love you.

    -from a 12 year old trying to figure out how to live the rest of her life

  • I’m always asking my “best friends” if they are ok and I have never been asked that unless I got hurt and I say to myself “how do u know that ur not hurt from the inside and the pain is going to the outside”

  • This is fake because depressed people are actually quite ugly, it is a scientifically proved symptom. This is such a deeeeeep film about how woman are a little too emotional for their own good.

  • Those cringe fakers(Y’know what community it is, I use it, I don’t wanna fight that whole community. Since I’m in it): Y E S I C A N M A K E I T R E A L I S T I C!

  • It’s been more than 15 years m not feeling internally happy, i have lost my internal happiness, peace n interest in various activities. I feeling so shy to talk about what m feeling n what m going through as people’d judge me for being depressed inspite of being a boy. I don’t feel happy anymore, it feels like it’s my duty to live n nothing more. Nobody notices my ongoing mood swings n my sadness. I am completely suicidal. I don’t have friends to live for. I feel so judged all the time, that doesn’t let me relax at any time……����������

  • My mom said that according to a google study, depression, anxiety and all problems comes with watching Mobile. My depression started even before I started using phone for some extra use except games and all. And I told her about my depression, but maybe she just forgot. She told me a few days ago that just because I am “lazy” and fat at “this” age I am not like them. And just because I don’t like math and science and computer like my parents, maybe I am not her daughter, maybe I was exchanged with another child at the hospital… I don’t know what to say, but yeah, it hurts a lot….

  • My mom literally knows I have depression and anxiety and I literally try not to show it in front of her cause then she’ll get all sympathetic on me so I literally just cry and act like a maniac in front of my cousins instead��

  • Isn’t it funny that our pillows, stuffed animals, thick blankets and just anything in our room knows what we’ve been through and that we’ve been crying every night, thinking about committing while our friends and family just say that we’re being dramatic and that we just want attention? Because no it’s not funny…

    You matter ������

  • What if you told one of your parents that you hate yourself and they do nothing about it?, you cry infront of them and they do nothing just ignore you

  • When You’re always there for your friend through their hardest moments, But Suddenly when you are at your worst they disappear. And When you just need to be around them, They always have plans. When somebody makes them at their worst and you sit there worrying for them but they don’t understand that if they get hurt again, You’ll feel it’s your fault and not theirs. I’m sorry for this comment, I just needed to vent a little cuz I have nobody else to vent to. Cuz nobody cares so even if nobody cares at least I was able to explain for once.

  • sometime’s parents doesnt get the clue that we are NOT fine,they think its ok and its the part of growing up… but they just think that depresion is an easy thing to go through… so if an adults or parents read this comment please treat your child as a person if your child had a mental health issues support them and please care instead if dont care…
    thank you…

  • So I found a song, it’s not about depression but it hits pretty close, it brought me to tears and it got me thinking about some what of a future.
    Lyrics

    I’m in my bed
    And you’re not here
    And there’s no one to blame but the drink and my wandering hands
    Forget what I said
    It’s not what I meant
    And I can’t take it back
    I can’t unpack the baggage you left

    What am I now?
    What am I now?
    What if I’m someone I don’t want around?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

    What if I’m down?
    What if I’m out?
    What if I’m someone you won’t talk about?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

    You said you cared
    And you missed me, too
    And I’m well aware I write too many songs about you
    And the coffee’s out
    At the Beachwood Café
    And it kills me ’cause I know we’ve run out of things we can say

    What am I now?
    What am I now?
    What if I’m someone I don’t want around?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

    What if I’m down?
    What if I’m out?
    What if I’m someone you won’t talk about?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

    And I get the feelin’ that you’ll never need me again

    What am I now?
    What am I now?
    What if you’re someone I just want around?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

    What if I’m down?
    What if I’m out?
    What if I’m someone you won’t talk about?
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’ again
    I’m fallin’

  • I hate people in this world how they judge someone like there perfect how there think. Like you here for what, if it’s for fuck all of my day just go away, I don’t need you in my life even if your my family

  • Just past 12AM and is my birthday today but I just don’t feel happy. My parents divorced when I was 4 and I live with my dad and my dad he have a kid with his girlfriend and they lives with us a few weeks a go they were arguing and when my dad went out I was in my room and my dad’s girlfriend was talking to her mom and I heard that she want me to go die and after that she has been telling me to go die. And I just don’t know what to do now, and now I’m always sad and crying in my room I feel like no one even likes me in this world. Like my whole world is all dark. I don’t even know why am I even in this world. And it has been three year’s since I started cutting myself on the wrist. (Sorry if some doesn’t make sense cause English isn’t my first language)

  • Hello, sorry for the horrible English, I’m Brazilian, and I’m using the Google translator to see if anyone identifies…

    I turned 13 in July this year (28 / Jul / 2020 to be more exact) and I have noticed that I have always been someone like that, I am afraid to leave the closet because of my parents, I feel bad, very bad and I’m ashamed of myself, like, I can’t make friends and I feel like crap, I think everything I try to do goes wrong, a place that little by little people come to hate me and try to get away from me, but maybe it is thing in my head? it confuses me, and it makes me sad; I don’t know, I never knew, after all my parents never make mistakes, right? I’m always wrong and I just pretend to get attention, if I pour out on networks I end up being a joke for my age, but I really feel that way… why all this free hate? or maybe why am I still like this? I have no reason to be sad, but why am I? it is something I have been asking myself, and I end up getting worse, should I leave my room? need help? why do I always answer that everything is fine? why can’t I vent personally? I feel so useless, so… I don’t know, empty?

    Olá, desculpe o inglês horrível, sou brasileiro, e estou usando o google tradutor para ver se alguem se identifica…

    eu completei 13 anos em julho deste ano (28/jul/2020 para ser mais exato) e venho notando que a tempos sempre fui alguém assim, eu trnho medo de sair do armário por causa dos meus pais, me sinto mal, muito mau e tenho vergonha de mim mesmo, tipo, eu não consigo fazer amizades e me sinto um lixo, acho que tudo que eu tento fazer dá errado, sitno que aos poucos as pessoas vêm a me odiar e a tentar se afastar de mim, mas talvez seja coisa da minha cabeça? isso me confunde, e me intristece, devo dizer que me afastei de pessoas queridas e que não consigo socializar com muitos amigos e parentes, por medo e por… a simples tristeza? eu não sei, nunca soube, afinal meus pais nunca erram, certo? eu estou sempre errado e só me finjo para ganhar atenção, se desabafo em redes acabo por virar motivo de piada por minha idade, mas eu realmente me sinto assim… o pq de todo esse ódio gratuito? ou talvez pq eu continuo assim? eu não tenho motivos para ser triste, mas pq sou? é algo que ando me perguntando, e acabo ficando pior, será que devo sair do meu quarto? preciso de ajuda? pq eu sempre respondo que está tudo bem? pq eu não consigo desabafar pessoalmente? eu me sinto tão inutil, tão… sei lá, vazio?

  • I really want my own school to screen us because this Asian system of education is heavy. I know teachers who wouldn’t do something about it (or take you into consideration) and just pile up your requirements until they get something written on their record books.

  • I try hard not to self harm but I’m starving myself ��Even tho my mom makes me eat��I’m gonna tell her I ate��I may be depressed��But I’m still learning how to self harm��I hope I leave the world soon��But I’m not gonna stop self harm myself��

  • I dont know If I’m depressed, but I mostly got the signs. I cry a lot like about nothing, cant sleep just staring all night into the darkness. But the problem is I wish I could talk to friends or my parents. But I cant, because I got no friends and I keep shouting to my parents. They keep saying “it’s all gonna be okey” but they dont understand me. I dont wanna shout and fight with them, I mean I love them but I’m doing everything wrong and no one even cares about me anymore just wanna give up����

  • I am suicidal and I am have it till 7 I started to cut at the age of 8 and now I am here. 9 years old. Is it normal for me to cut and be suicidal at a young age?

  • I don’t have anyone to talk to:-(
    Everyone yells and laugh at me.But I realized that god was there and he was ready to listen to me.

  • Reasons that i need to die and go to heaven
    1.get a gun and shot myself
    2. Go out the house and get my gun and shot my head
    3. And go to the heaven
    4. And say good bye family’s

  • i feel like of weird talking about depression to others. they usually say “lmao” or “same” like, dude I’m not joking. its a serious matter and I really feel like I am depressed even though my parents have tried their hardest to provide me with basic necessities and like, we go out together like 2 times a month. but since sophomore year, I’ve lost my love for art and learning languages. tonight is the sixth night in a row in which i haven’t gotten sleep. I’m so tired but i cant fall asleep. I’m crying all the time, because of school, because of how I’ve been avoiding my friends, because of so many things happening. i already have childhood trauma, but i don’t think my depression started there. my anxiety sure did, but i think that contributed to my depression. i haven’t talked about it before, but ive tried overdosing on medication about four times now (last time on July 27, 2018) and i really don’t know what to do anymore. i don’t want to cause anyone pain or annoyance, but ive also been doing it cause ill randomly lash out at my parents, my little brothers, my cousins, literally everyone. i don’t know what to do, or how to feel. but i don’t want to tell my family, cause i know they’re trying their hardest, especially now that there’s a pandemic, but i just cant anymore. please. what should i do? I’m a high school junior, and college is coming up too. i might just join the military and not tell my parents. i wear glasses so i don’t think they’ll send me out to fight and stuff, but i have no interests in anything anymore and i don’t know what else to do. college is too expensive for my parents to afford and i don’t want to go in debt. literally, i hate being alive, but i don’t want to die either. please send help, and chicken nuggets with bbq sauce

  • They can’t accept from being who I am,they always said im always on my phone but my phone is where I can tell some of my feelings,sometimes I would rather have some internet friends than personal friends,internet friends know some of my feelings but not all because I would feel burden from telling all my problems to them,my personal friends thinks I’m always happy because of my loud laugh but deep inside I’m dying ��

  • I feel like the world wants to tell me it’ll be alright and then move on with there lives like u dont think I’ve heard “get better❤” or “your perfect love yourself” hello dont you think ive tried that

  • I got beat up on school last year my dad was called
    When he came all he did was give me an angry look for no reason. He was acting understanding when the teacher explained what happened.
    After school my dad picked me up and he told me this is what I get for having low grades, cuz my grades I gotta be around these kind of people in lower classes
    I didn’t think much about it then
    But now depression is hitting me I want to cry so much ����

  • I would love to know if i have depression…. Its too much to handle this sadness…. It’s been a week and i haven’t gone to school or eaten or just…. Moved at all cause i feel so exhausted even if i sleep a lot.

  • Me at school: thinking people doesn’t like me

    Me at home: i feel like i’m left alone

    Me at night: cried silently and think all my problem and getting stressed and depressed

    But…….i’m fine BTS is here when I’m depressed i’m just watching their videos to make me happy��

  • Sometimes you just wanna cry so hard but you have to control it till you reach your safe place to cry.

    Under the blanket and pillow, there is a world where you feel safe where no one can hurt you.
    You feel so good that you want to lose yourself inside your blanket the safest place.

    When you see yourself in the mirror you pity yourself

    Sometimes slow and calm music makes you cry more and more.

    Sometimes you ask yourself why we’re you born.

  • Hello there, I seem your watching this because your depressed or someone you know is:(…

  • If only I could meet these people. When I told the assistant principal at my school about my depression last Friday and about how I didn’t feel the need to take a shower everyday and stuff like that, he told me that I should be grateful and kids in Africa go through hard things to clean themselves and blah blah blah…
    I went to meet these people. They understand.

  • I cant anymore… i tried the National suicide prevention lifeline phone number and i was put onto hold for two hours before i decided to hang up. Im not doing much better, but a friend of mine has stepped in and is making an attempt to help me.

  • Who said im a tenager and depressed. Im ten and i have depression, anxiety, PTSD, and anger issues… is there something wrong with me?..

  • kids just need love some attetion, even tho i know my mom is just doing this for the best, but le0t them be happy for a little bit.. love your parents be gratefull, and even if you are depressed, just know that their trying their best <3

  • Every time I talk to my mom she ignores me doesn’t come to none of my games my grades dropped after she called my teacher and blames me for her anxiety

  • am i the only person who can’t tell their parents that they have depression�� bc my mom acts like she wouldn’t care about me and my dad is never at home bc of work�� i really tried to say that i have depression but my mom started being angry at me and shouted “WELL I HAVE PROBLEMS TOO BUT I’M NOT TELLING U ALL MY PROBLEMS!” i know that my mom has problems too and i understand this but she NEVER trys to understand me☹�� my parents are just like “no one should have problems” and they are trying to help everyone but they forgot me�� their daughter! why am i the only person they don’t care about?! why don’t they like me?! bc i’m fat? bc i’m ugly or something else? THIS is how i really feel. this is my secret. either my sibling don’t know about my feelings. EITHER MY BEST FRIEND!! if i don’t want to see her she goes like “u don’t like me anyway��” abd that’s why i can’t tell her how i feel�� if i would say anyone that i’m depressed they would ask why i’m depressed but i don’t really know why i’m depressed. these are my problems and not the reason why i’m depressed. i feel like there’s a big hole in me�� thank my depression i can cry only wiht thinking of my mum or someone else…

  • Isnt it funny how even strangers from the internet who u do not know at all can be more understanding than your parents who had known you since you existed
    Its sad how not all parents can be understanding about mental health

  • Me coming here from tiktok and because I am in depression I like pain I don’t care about my life I grab sharp objects and wanting to cut my self but my mom would tell me to put the knife down. Tell me which kid that has depression does not like the feeling of the sharp knife cutting their skin.

  • Everything points to depression but this can’t be it. I have everything I need in terms of material stuff, I have a couple of friends…so am i or am i not depressed

  • I first listened to this song two years ago and I commented about how i wish everyone is just happy and free from the shackles of sadness, depression, anxiety, and many more sad things. two years after, i am much happier now. it is weird that i felt the completeness and healing right at this time of pandemic but i am thankful that i have survived whatever darkness i was in back then. soon, we’d all be happy. we just have different timelines of healing and all. all will be alright in time. ��

  • I’m realizing I’m having an interesting feeling (not in a good way) it happened ever since I spoke out my depression from that day I always felt worse and I was depressed in a different way unlike before.

    But tbh I don’t like to self diagnose so it’s just my mind☺��

  • i want to go to a doctor and tell them my feelings to see if i have depression but i can’t because my mom won’t take me, she thinks it’s hormones

  • my mom found out i was depressed and then she took away all my social media cause apparently that makes me depressed when really it’s cause she yells at me when i first get up and every serving of the day in her loudest voice

  • I try to keep my friends, but I ruin everything
    Do I have bd luck or what? I don’t wanna die but I want to… DOESNT make sense but u get it,
    Yea and then u would say

    “Others are sadder than you”
    Eh, I’m dumb

  • the dislikes are from adults who say ” kids can’t be depressed ” LIKE BISH YES WE CAN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR LIVES

  • I texted my friend in 1st period of school day.

    He: I am not at school.. I don’t know.. I feel depressed.

    Me texting another friend: Yo, Meron is not in school today. He said he is bored.

  • It sucks when you tell your mom you are suicidal (I was 12 when I told her and now I’m 13) and she responds with, “Tell me when you are going to do it”

  • Let’s make sure the generations we give birth to have a happy life. The best suit for them. Good parents. Let’s make sure that is the norm from now on. Good luck! ^-^

  • y’all talking about parents and all i gotta say is parent(s)/guardian(s) need to start listening to us bruh. they fr don’t know what we go through because we can’t open up to them because we’re scared they’d judge and etc. like smh-

  • My parents: you can tell us everything, we will understand u
    Me: i don’t wanna live anymore, i am not happy anymore.
    My parents: you’re just being childish, stop talking rubbish.

  • I feel like staying in my room all the time. I don’t even know what to do, I just give up. I try to always smile because if anyone sees me not smiling they ask if i’m ok. I try to distract myself, but sometimes it’s hard. I go into my room a lot of times a day, just to let out what I feel, to cry or sigh. I don’t know what to do.

  • OK so i thought i was just getting mad… I being feeling so bad lately i cant put my feelings in words sometimes all u need is a presence of someone who really cares about u. I dont believe i have the same dad that i used to when i was a child i dont feel like to be happy or to live i cant tell my best friend anything about me so that she doesnt feel that i will do something to myself my family doesnt give a shit about me and i know my whole life they are gonna taunt me i bought u a laptop i bought u a phone u studied in a such a good school i payed all the fees they will never understand what u want what do u want to do with urself
    PS: I am indian and my life is a mess

  • kids these days, like cmon seriously, she has a home, a massive wardrobe, education, food on her table, and all she does is make up pathetic problems when people around the world are starving. she should stop being a baby and just fix her stupid little problems, if u feel fat then get outside and do something. duh. she is just so self centred and always on her phone. she should just stop complaining.

  • Sometimes I’m doing my homework just talking with my friends and then I start getting sad and I leave the group to go cry. Am I depressed? I’ve always told myself man up man up but it doesn’t help

  • Depression feels like your in a dark room there’s doors with light shining under the doors but when you try to open it it’s locked and you can’t get out you can’t see what those lights are slowly those lights gets Dimmer and Dimmer so now your trapped in a fucking dark Room with no one to talk too you have to act like you are the most happiest person in the world but the more you smile the more tired and angrier you get with the world and the more you laugh the more you wanna cry until your eyes fell numb and your soul feels like it’s empty

    POV or is it –

  • Depression has been hitting me a lot since 2 years ago starting on middle school
    All my dad does is complain about my grades say how he’s gonna beat me if my grades are bad, I literally got no one to talk to
    I have been hiding my depression all the time, on the outside I’m happy but truly I’m crying inside ��
    I want to suicide so much rn

  • Roses are red the stress is like laying on a death bed my mom said it was okay but we all know it’s what people say all we do is pray but there’s nothing to say and we have problems the demons are here and we can stop them it hurts so much ��

  • all i want to do right now is to lock myself in my room, get stoned and listen to depressing music all day
    too bad weed is illegal where i live

  • I post and give out my feelings making me feel light by writing poems and my mom saw those and now she taunts me everyday saying ” her life is messed up she thinks that ungrateful brat”

  • Im 12 years old and im in the 6 grade. I have been having a lot of problems and depression. The main reasons are im fat and i get bullied a lot even by my close friends and the other reason is a lot of pressure and school. Ive had depression from a young age, and ive been hiding it for a long time because i didnt want my family to get worried. I hated myself very very much. I have attempted to harm myself Multiple times. I have tried to commit suicide probably 6 times, one time it got so bad that i was seconds before stabbing myself but my mom walked in my room and i removed the knife. I have tried cutting my veins and choking myself to death many many times. Ive had a lot of Scratches by trying to hurt myself. I was an amaizing student and had straight A’s and loved playing soccer. But i started to lose Interest in the things that i loved, i started getting horrible grades and my depression got worst. I always played with my cousins and friends and i was acting like i was happy and Smiling but in the inside i was very hurt. I try to be a very funny guy and joke around with my friends and family but eveytime i go to my room i just start to cry, one day i was getting bullied a lot and getting called multiple names, i went in my room and started crying and crying, my mom got in my room to tell me that the food is ready but she saw me crying and asked whats the problem but i tried to say that i hurt my leg trying to fake it but she didnt belive me. and then she wanted me to open up about my problems. I told her everything and she Literally started crying. Of course she didnt knew that i have been going through this
    I still have depression problems and its getting worse

  • I’m fine.. but am I really? I’d do anything just to feel okay… I ask myself this question every day. Along with other questions like who are you truly? What makes you happy? That might sound wonky but if you think about it I’m just another lost lad who needs to find themselves and believe that I can live life bc rn feels like im just trying to survive. I’m probably the only one thinking this bc it’s like 4 a.m rn and I’m like lost in my own mind but is life even real like at this point I don’t even know whats real anymore.. all the pain I’ve been through, the hurt, depression, waking up and wishing I stayed asleep, I’m putting this out there bc I want to get better, I want to know who I truly am and I want to know that I can be free from all this pain stuffed deep down in an ocean of thoughts, I just want an open air way. My name is desia and this is the day my life is about to change.

  • Reasons why you should stay alive.

  • Can anyone recommend books that a teen could read, or free online videos? I have a 17 year old son & we had started therapy, which he insisted wasn’t working. Unfortunately, I lost my job and insurance, so we’re back to square one. Thanks.

  • @Moneet for me, It really is because of my phone, this might sound dumb or stupid but. I’d appreciate if you read /see my story:

    Honestly, when I was a kid I would love to take my dads phone and play with it, but that cause problem: fast forward 4yrs
    “We not moved from my old home, I started using my device a lot more and it, hurt me.. my eyesight started becoming poorer..and poorer it was hard not being able to see EVERYHING clearly and that caused, anxiety. Fear of someone attacking me or stabbing/killing be from behind, and then. My grandmother, died. It was so hard for me since I still didn’t get to know her yet, it was like she’s a guest that left too soon, only 4yrs that we came to this new country and now she’s gone. After words, fast forward to the present, contemplating if I should end it all, maybe giving myself battle scars would make me feel better? Maybe it’ll make all the pain go away, then came insomnia, crying myself too sleep, blaming myself for every time my family did something that was related in anyway shape or form to me, thinking every time my mother compared me to my cousin was true, you see she was the opposite of me, she was “kind” “well behaved” “don’t talk back” “doesn’t refuse to do anything” “says yes to anything her parents say” “doesn’t have trouble falling asleep” (sometimes they caught me crying in my room I’ll tell them that my eyes were just watering) she was the perfect daughter that my parents dearly wanted, that I wasn’t. I was the oldest so I had it the hardest I was a little spoiled when I was an only child, that went away when my siblings where born, my parents screamed at my siblings but always hit, me.

    I’m going to end here it to hard to think about anything without crying I need I break I’m sorry, goodbye and thank you for reading my story and staying, The End����

  • I don’t want to ask my mam because she will just take it as a joke and as I hide my feelings, she doesn’t see me sad. After school I run upside, listen to sad music and cry or sleep.

  • My friends take depression as a joke

    Last week, my other friend said it’s not depression, its your hormones.

    I am the one who is feeling this, not her FOR GOD’S SAKE!!

  • My depression comes from Jeff Bezos’ making 78.5 billion a year while I have to work 3+ years of my life at amazon just to afford a lightly used truck!!!!!!!!!

  • I watch it ’cause i see it while im scrolling. Then when i watch it, i feel sad because i fully have that 5 signs. It’s just something that i found the problems and sadness here in our house instead of happiness, right? So yeah I can’t even go out of here but I’m okay.

  • people think that teenagers are just being “moody” or “having a sulk” but it is depression. my family members get mad at me for crying so i try to hold it in. it is so hard. If you ever see your child showing any type of depressing signs do something before it is too late. DO NOT MAKE IT WORSE.teens need help and making fun of there depression can lead to very low self esteem or worse make them commit suicide. Teens go trough a lot at school too and if there grades are low support them and do not get mad,sad,angry or disappointed with them. Saying that a teens grades are bad can make them worse because they feel like they can not do it.

  • Depression is like where your in a world alone screaming for help crying feeling useless and other stuff but the fact is I’m 11 and I was going through that since 3rd grade but this grade hits me the most…..

  • Things I do:
    Call myself fat, ugly, stupid, stressed, paralyzed
    Addicted to my phone
    Never sleeps, only at day/done with school, never sleeps at night
    Insulting myself

  • I’m not depressed, but I show strong symptoms of BPD. When I told my friends, they told me to “stop seeking attention” and to not be “so dramatic”. Well sorry, forgot that you guys are sad and “broken” cuz your boyfriends ignored you for 5 minutes. Sorry, forgot that only you guys have the rights to not be okay. Sorry, forgot that an outsider and loner like me cannot be sad because people will not give me as much attention as they give to you when you’re always faking depression and your loneliness. Sorry, for having BPD. Sorry for wasting your time, Sorry for being your friend. Sorry for existing.

  • I have depression, anxiety, And OCD my life is hell please come out to help I would say but you can’t save someone who is already gone

  • My parents never take a moment to think oh my god depression is so high for teens maybe I should have a chat with my daughter just to know.

    But no not my parents they punish me hardcore if I don’t go to school for one day they take everything away and my phone is the only way I can feel less lonely I actually feel like a have friends on there however school is completely different. I finally talked to my dad about how I’m feeling and school is making me feel even worse and that I wanted to take my life and I showed him my scars he cried I cried too.

    But the other day he said “I bet you aren’t going to school because your day drinking”

    It’s like what was the point of telling you how I felt about school and going outside when your just gunna ignore it a couple weeks later and think it’s another reason why I don’t want to go outside

    Parents think there kids are fine “oh it won’t happen to my kids” same with a deadly disease “ oh my kids are healthy they won’t get that” ����

  • For anyone who sees this and is going through a rough time, remember there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. Things will get better. You have to go through the hard parts in life to get to the good parts. Keep your head up and put one foot in front of the other. You’ll be okay, everything works out in the end.

  • I can’t tell my parents I have depression, because they will blame it on my phone and take it away. I have no one to talk to. I have no hope.

  • Me:*sees the title*

    Me:this is how I feel cause I have no one my parents do drugs. my ungles are mean. And I’m a disappointment to myself(and I’m not lying)��

  • i don’t really know the reason why i live, im tired of everything.. i felt like im in a room in which i can’t breathe… i want to tell to my mom that im in pain but i just can’t, i felt like nobody understands my pain..

  • everyone is amazing and worthfull
    so, dont give up
    you will get out of this horrible situation
    trust me! do not lose hope cuz life is beautyful and you are valuable a lot

  • Yesterday, My Mom told me that I am a mistake, and people like me should be kicked out of the house, I felt my heart sink and I asked myself: “Am I really a bad person, did I do something to deserve this treatment? I always knew I am a mistake, but she just said it herself!?” I ended up bleeding my hands and thighs, I wept for hours not knowing if I’ll ever be able to change. And today and now, I am at my grandparent’s house and my grandmother noticed that I’m sad than she asked my mom and she responded: “I don’t know, since she woke up she’s acting this way.” after 3 minutes she came and told me:”don’t you dare show them you’re sad, or they’ll know I’m lying to them.” I just nodded. Until now, I didn’t let her notice my injured hands. I just want to die…

  • guys: just because you relate to these things does not mean you automatically have depression, if you’re really needing to know go to a doctor!

  • Uhm. My parents know I’m depressed due to me being sexually assaulted twice and still dont take it seriously. My mum even uses it in arguements. Is that toxic? Or is it like they say and I’m just being dramatic

  • I don’t know if i have depression or not i do the same things as what she does or say but i still don’t know. but my parents blame the phone or the one person that makes me happy. They don’t even know it is them making me like this. but their excuse is ” you want attention” “your just being a teenager”

  • This is how most of the teen get into depression
    Fake friends
    Bieng fat
    Called as ugly
    People who judge them for being fat and called as ugly
    For having people who don’t understand them (except mom )

  • No one listens to me, they all say I am making everything up. I have recently started writing poems here is one of my recent ones. If someone comments on this, I will post another one of my poems in the comments.

    I am okay,
    But not really.

    I may smile and laugh,
    But that is all just a mask.
    I may say I am okay,
    But I am not.

    I put on a smile;
    So everyone can relax for a while.
    Here I admit.
    I am not okay.
    I never was.
    I never will be,
    But that is okay.

    There is no need to worry,
    Or to ask what is wrong.
    I will always say nothing.
    I will say I am fine.

    To be honest,
    I am hurting,
    I am breaking.
    Many people call me their friend,
    But I only have one friend of my own.

    I spend time.
    I try.
    I work hard;
    To keep everyone happy.

    It is hard
    To keep everyone happy,
    When I am not happy myself.

    My life is a lie.
    They all say I am fine.
    They say I am cheerful,
    But they are blind.

    Truth is I am not fine.
    I am lonely.
    I am not okay.

    But everyone else thinks I am.
    So that is okay.
    If they say I am okay.
    Then I will say I am okay.
    I have to hold on.
    I know there will be a day,
    When all of this goes away.

    -Faith
