I'm going to get help! - January 9th 2012, 02:01 AM

As the title states, I'm finally going to get help for my depression!

I was lying in my bed earlier today, unable to get up and do anything. I just couldn't handle life. My dad came in the room and started talking to me. He finally asked: "Do you think you're depressed?" and I answered, "yes". He took it surprisingly well, and he kept talking to me, and he said the right things. He's going to get me someone to talk to. It's not like I suddenly feel way better, but I am incredibly relieved, and I feel a little hopeful for the first time in a while.

Quick question, though: what can I expect from therapy?

Hey Elsa, this is great news! What to expect from therapy depends on what you're seeking it for, the specific person you see (which includes what school/paradigm they work from, basically what theories they practice in) and what type of therapy you go into. The first session with anyone you see will involve a lot of questions which will include why you're there and what goals you have for where you want to be at the end.
