Behaving Badly?

You May Need to Talk to Someone

Occasional bad moods, sulks, tempers or acting out is normal when you are a teenager, but depression is something different. Depression is an overwhelming sense of sadness, despair, or anger.

Depression may make you feel: Constantly irritable, sad, or angry.
Like nothing seems fun anymore, and you just don't see the point of trying.
Bad about yourself - worthless, guilty, or just "wrong" in some way.
Like sleeping all the time or like you can’t sleep enough.
Helpless and hopeless.
Like you want to die or kill yourself.

Depression is a serious condition. If you recognise these persistent feelings of sadness in your own behaviour you need to reach out and get help:

You don’t have to suffer alone. Start by telling somebody you trust. Depression can need an expert to help. Read more about it below.
