Other, it'd be my psychiatric nurse or another professional I see. I get a lot of help from them. I never had any help before I did seek professional help.

I would most likely go to my doctor or therapist or if I was feeling really brave, my mom.

I would talk to one of my best friends, simply because nobody else would know what to do. I would tell my therapist, if I had one.

When I need help with my depression, I go to my best friends and teenhelp. I cannot trust my family or some random person.

I have a friend who I've known for practically my entire life so I would go to her mom. My dad also has a friend that I could go to and I considered going to her husband too before he passed away.

and all the sciencewe have to offer has failed them,
when worst-case scenario comes true,
clinging to hope is all we've got left.

I would talk to my friends. In particular I have one friend who always helps me and knows everything about me. So I'd probably go to him.

Friends mainly.
Although if it was really scaring me and I genuinely though I was going to do something, I might contact childline or tell my counsellor.
