Talked to my school councilor and she said that she needed my parents permission to council me. I'm not ready to talk to them about my depression. I'm not really sure where to go now, any suggestions?

What about talking to your pastor? Generally the school counselors will talk to you anyway. But maybe because of your age. There was another girl on the forum who talked to her school counselor without parents permission. But I guess that schools could be different. Do you have an adult that you could talk with that you could trust. A teacher maybe that could help you out?

I am going to hook you up with some teen sites that might help you.
 
 
 
I hope that some of these sites can help you.  You may have to talk to your parents for your own good if you are continually suffering.  You need help and should be able to get it.
 
I hope that you feel better soon.

Have you thought about asking the coucilor to talk to your parents for you? Its a very tough thing to get this out, maybe he/she can break the ice with your parents. This can sometimes open the lines of comunication and you can avaoid the confrontation aspect of it. Its nothing to be ashamed of, its a serious health problem. Hopefully if you can get your parents involved you can get into therapy, it really helps :-)
 
PS - just a view on seeking help from clergy, i don't generally think this is helpful, IN MY EXPERIENCE, this DOES NOT MEAN that i  think its a bad idea or there arn't clergy that are very good at couciling.  But i generally feel like they place blame on you, mostly because they think you are feeling this way because you arn't living the ""insert religion here" lifestyle.  We know its much more than that.

Misstoria,

I am very happy that the links that I posted are helping you. That is always good feedback for me because I tell others that members have gotten help with these links. That makes me feel pretty good. I am happy for you.

Take things one day at a time, things will fall into place.

It takes work and commitment. But you are doing this for you and if you don't nobody else can. Only you can. Keep trying. Never give up on getting better.

Hugs, Karen
