Although depression is a treatable illness, many people do not seek help.

Ask for help if

  • You feel depressed, lonely, or moody
  • You turn to alcohol or drugs
  • You engage in unnecessary risk-taking
  • You throw yourself compulsively into your work to hide your depression.

Get help by contacting a trusted Community member, talk to a friend or family member, talk to your family doctor or call your local Community Mental Health Services.

  • Kids Help Phone: 1-800-668-6868
