How to help a friend who is depressed

  • Watch for signs- a depressed friend may move, walk or talk very slowly. They might cry a lot or say a lot of negative things about themselves or the world around them.


  • Listen and reassure- just listen and try not to judge. Don’t tell them that they should not feel the way they feel. Tell them you think they might be depressed and to get help.


  • Help them to get help.
