Hello, my name is Jacob and I am 14 years old. I have had depression for 4 years. Today is the day I told my mom that I had depression. I been up all night I was in the chat room around 6am and i got some help from hh457(I don't know if thats the correct number). My mom let me stay home from school and wants to ask my counselor from school to get me a private counselor. What is making me depressed is school like grades, relationship and things that get into me deep. If you have any suggestions for me please let me know. I find music and a video game I like to play helps me not think about Depression.

Hi Jacob,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. You are right about distractions. They help. And I think the counseling is a good idea. That will get you on the right track. Also talking to your family doctor helps.

I am happy that you were able to chat and get some input. Depression is no fun, but know that we here understand you and that you will get a lot of advice here.

I hope that you start feeling better soon.

Take care, keep posting. I can also direct you to some teen sites that might help.
