Dealing with depression

Depression can feel like a heavy weight. Sometimes, people feel that they cannot get out from under it. This hopelessness is what leads some people to think about taking their own lives. However, you can assume responsibility for your personal health behaviors. If you ever find yourself thinking about suicide, remember:
  • Suicide is never a solution to depression. Solutions do exist for every problem, but suicide is not one of them.
  • Feelings of depression do not go on forever. Spend time with friends and family. This is a healthy defense mechanism that can help get you through a difficult time.
  • You are not alone. There are people who love and want to help you. If you are feeling low, talk to someone close.
