Need Help - May 25th 2017, 03:57 PM

Every day I try to get help everywhere. I am depressed every day, I need people to please PM me, I am losing respect for people that tell me I have to be 18 to get ANY HELP for Depression.
That is not fair because I am 16 years old, I should still get some help, My parent's don't help me, People seem to just get annoyed when I am upset, I am tired of it, I even feel Suicide a lot, I cry way more than most teen boys, I just hate my life so much, I just really need advice, I am losing it, I feel like I am losing respect in general now, But the only way I could probably help myself is by posting on this website, I can't even have any Anti-Depressants until I AM 18!!!!!!!!!!! HOW AM I SUPPOST TO CALM?!?! 2 YEARS THAT IS A LONG TIME FOR DEPRESSION THAT IS ANOTHER 2 YEARS OF HELL, BOTH ME AND MY PARENT'S CANT TAKE IT!!!!!!!!!! IDK WHAT TO DO ANYMORE.
I feel like Every day I am ready to give up on life, everybody ignores me, Nobody even cares about the way I feel or interact it seems like, I can only see a physiologist once a month, YAY for that!!! I am just done, I am done, I can't stand my life now, PLEASE PM ME, I NEED AS MUCH SUPPORT AS POSSIBLE, MY LIFE SUXS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like I am not healthy enough to continue a normal life
Thanks for reading

Hi there,

Welcome to TeenHelp. Here in Canada you don't need to be older than 18 to get any help. I started getting help for my depression when I turned 13. We are all here for you and we will support you as much as you can. Just a quick reminder, we aren't professionals so either way, you should go see your doctor.

I've been where you are, and I'm still here. You can do it. These feelings wont last forever. Tell your doctor how you're feeling and be 100% honest. Doctor's are there to help you.

Here's also a list of hotlines that you can try calling next time you're feeling low.

Don't forget as I mentioned, we are here for you.

Stay Strong,

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”

Sorry you've had so much trouble trying to get some help for your depression. I'm not too sure what the laws and regulations are with regards to treatment, especially medical treatment, but would it be worth talking to a GP or some sort of referral/voluntary services near you to see what is available? It might be that there are regulations regarding parental consent to certain options such as medication, in which case you may be able to find some talking therapy options, or even some support groups in your local area which will happily have you.

In the mean time though, coming here is a really great idea and I'm glad you've come to us. Of course, nobody here is a professional and so any advice we give cannot replace that of a qualified professional. We can give you as much support as you need, but it isn't treatment, and so you might still be better off looking for options alongside joining us here at TH. I think that, if it is possible in your area, both working together could do you a lot of good.

If you need to PM someone, my inbox is always open so don't be a stranger! I'm always up for a chat and if you have any questions about TH or if there's anything I can help with I'll be glad to give you a hand.

Take care.

books, art, cinema, wine, and so on—
are the things you need to live

Depression is really hard to deal with. It is sad that you can't get help until you are 18, but you can help yourself. find someting you love when you are down and do it. It helps alot.
