    A dangerous situation, time is of the essence.

    I’m 23 years old my brother is now 19. My brother has always struggled from depression and anger. He has always been very destructive towards my moms house with holes in the wall from punching and stabbing it. He was kicked out about two years ago because we’ve always somewhat feared him and my mom couldn’t take it anymore. He would collect knives, swords and hatchets from online which made me nervous, so I put a deadbolt on my room door. He has threaten to kill us both on numerous occasions... recently....

    Do I have Schizophrenia?

    I have been told many times that I'm paranoid and delusional. I have held off seeing a psychiatrist for years. Here's a short list of a few issues I have daily. - I have a hard time showing any emotion with deaths/illness of family members. Even if I feel it inside. But I get teary eyed during sad and happy movies. - My voice in my head narrates almost everything I do. It's my voice but I will hear it in different accents. - People catch me talking to myself aloud and I didn't even....

    Severely Depressed

    I am 66 years old and retired as of February of this year due to being laid off from my position. I wanted to and would have kept working longer if not for being laid off. I was seeking part time employment and was offered a position of 20 hours per week. I was unable to accept this position as I just found out that I am going to need hip replacement surgery and it is scheduled for September. This position was just seasonal from July thru January and I really wanted to work but could not in good....
  • Feeling Overwhelmed and Depressed

    I'm usually a very positive person, but the last few years I've been dealing with extreme depression. I've been the caretaker of my husband the past two years. He fought sepsis last year, and this year he had a titanium rod placed in his leg. I'm also a full time English professor and have a tendency to work 60-80 hours a week during the school year (and beyond). We're share our house with another couple. She was supposed to take care of the household, but has mental issues, so....

    How can I help my husband?

    Hi, I’ve never experienced any form of mental illness myself, but I’m convinced my husband has depression. It’s taken me far too long to realise this, but now that I have I’m doing my best to help him. December last year I convinced him to see a doctor, and they referred him to specialists. He was then put on medication and started seeing a psychologist. Everything has been great since then, he hasn’t been getting angry like he used to or lashing out and he seems to respect himself more. The problem....

    Child diagnosed with depression

    My 11 year old son has been newly diagnosed with depression. We have an amazing relationship and he talks to me about everything. Over the past month he has struggled with feeling hopeless and frustrated with himself that he feels this way and can't figure out how to make it stop. It's hard as a parent to watch my little boy go through something that I can't help him with. I'm here to ask any parents or people living with depression for help on how to help him cope with this. I tell....

    Just need a platform to talk

    I am a 19 year old male who has just gone through a toxic breakup. I was in an intimate relationship with my best friend and we did everything together. We were extremely close and helped each other through each other’s pain. About less than a month ago, for some strange reason I felt the need to text another woman. This destroyed the relationship that we had and I was completely confused. I felt as though it was a different person who had been dishonest. My former lover and I are currently separated....
