I think I may have depression but my parents and none of my friends will believe me and just think I want attention. How do I know for sure if I have it. Samantha
Hi Samantha! Thanks for getting in touch with us. If you think you have depression, the best thing to do would be to go to see your doctor. A medical professional is the only person who can diagnose you, and if they find you do have depression, there are lots of things they can suggest to help you, such as counselling, which is completely confidential if you don't want to tell anyone. I hope if you do decide to tell your friends or family, that they are nice, perhaps if you were comfortable you could bring them to a second doctors appointment if they do find you have depression? That way the doctor could speak to them about it. Good luck! - Emmy
