Depression - Teen Support Group

Teen depression is marked by persistent sadness, discouragement, loss of self-worth, and loss of interest in usual activities. Depression can be a temporary response to many situations and stresses. Teens may be more susceptible to depression due to the normal maturation process, the stress associated with it, and conflicts with parents as they become more independent.

    the sad thing about myself is , I give everyone advice when they're in the gutter , I stick up for everyone , I'm ALWAYS there for people but no ones ever there for me . I give all the goodness in my heart to everyone and leave none for me and it's beginning to be too much and I think why I'm in such a bad place right now .

    Well, I'm 15 and lately I'm not sure how I feel. I feel empty, stressed, worthless, and sleep deprived. I go to school and teachers constantly tell me how smart I am and say that I'm going to get far in life, but when I come home I get told that I'm a lazy, worthless person. I'm constantly getting yelled at and I'm not sure how to handle it anymore. At night I have trouble sleeping and I'm...

    im courtney I'm 15...I guess that's how you are supposed to start this out. Not even my parents support me. I hear voices that say horrible things but I'm assuming that's from the fact i never sleep. When I go to school I plaster on a smile and ask anyone and they'll say I'm a generally happy person...but when I get home the smile comes off. My dad just yells at me and my mom is his puppet... if...

    hi, lately I've been going through some stuff related with eating disorders and questioning sexuality... I've been afraid to post because I was worried this site would let people I know get a notification but just whatever. I'm sick of feeling like I'm alone in this and I just generally feel like people look at me and instantly hate me and notice how ugly I am. Does anyone else feel like people...
