so my girlfriend is depressed and has been since ive known her, she has told me she hasnt been happy since she was 12(shes now 17) i want to help her i just dont know what to do? and i know iguess that it will come down to her helping herself. but is there anything that i can do to help? she also cuts. ): i love her and i just want her to be happy.
@beyond, is right in many ways.
@morgy, has she ever talked to a professional counsellor or doctor about her depression?
I am a mental health therapist but would not offer any specific advice without speaking to her.
Feel free to email me:)
Otherwise, having been a guy who has had a couple of girlfriends that have suffer from depression and in one case cutting, I know how it takes a large toll on– YOU that is tough and I sympathizes with what you are going through.
Do you feel she is suicidal, have you asked her?
