Heard that from someone as well,

If they are talking it out, it means they are trying to reason or possibly not do something over-reactional.

So definitely, they are looking for help.

Take advantage of the fact that she is open to getting help / treatment!

Mindbomber and chronix are bang on. For most people just talking about the issue in a comfortable environment with a professional can start the healing process almost immediately. For others, medication may be required due to a chemical imbalance. Masking a mental health issue with medication is way too common and usually unneeded. Personally, I believe that a GP would go the med route without further diagnosis in most cases. Having other professionals like a phyciatrist, phycologist, hell, even a nutritionist to offer some feedback can be invaluable.

I have been through the ringer with depression and anxiety and a lot of it is trial and error. Feeling like a prisoner in your own mind and overrun with emotions can be a scary place but there are options. Stay positive.

I've had some PMs from people asking me about my experience with people who have a mental illness so I'll just clarify it here.

1. My cousin was diagnosed with autism but at a very young age. Recognizing it at an early age has helped tremendously.
2. A colleague of mine was diagnosed with depression.
3. My manager's son was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

my mom suffered from depression due to the fact that was struggling with english which drove her nuts (she really wanted to blend in with canada for us), she had metal break downs a lot & i didnt really remember if she got any help (i was 6 to 7 years old)


i on other hand suffer from depression because i always thought i was useless & in seems that everyone has been tell me about that, my dad was a great man that went to university in the states, worked in big companies & made big money (aka a smart bright man)

i on the other hand was nothing like him, i failed at everything i did, school always questioning my dad, i always get yelled at & i kept thinking that my family broke apart was because of me (my dad divorced my mom when i was 9)

i never really told anyone, at one point i really thought about killing myself but i duno why i didnt do it, i never seek any help cuz i thought these so called professionals are mostly bs (i know someone that paid 300 an hr just so the psychologist can say "im sorry i cant help, its your own problems"

i ended up having a new lease on life by seeing how fortunate i am to be living in this world, my best advice is if u do seek help try to spend more time with her & do things with her, try to stay positive

im 25 & i feel down from time to time, i still talk to myself & blame myself for everything that has got wrong with in world, i always have to force myself to stay positive or else i be off the track

i duno how much of this would help but this is just a little insight on how i dealt with my problem (sorry if i jacked your thread OP)
i thanked you for sharing your story, not for the "professionals are bs". It's always recommended seek professional help if you're considering harming yourself.

I'm glad you were able to help yourself and see that you're not worthless and you didn't cause your parents to split. I wish people would never feel this way but I can understand how as a kid you don't know much better.

Don't compare yourself to others, no matter how successful they are, how smart they are, etc we don't know their daily struggles or what they've went through and may not be as happy as they appear.
