I Want To Help!
My best friend started dating this boy two years older than her. He dumped her and she has been totally depressed. She said that she doesn’t want to feel anymore pain and that scares me of what she's gonna do. I don't think she's depressed just because he dumped her. I know it has something to do with it, but I feel like its something else. I want to help her but I'm not sure how. – Kim, 15, Illinois
Hey Kim! First off, you should be really proud of yourself for sticking with your friend through her hardest times. I have been in her position, and speaking from experience I would want someone to get me help. Tell your parents about your friend's behavior, and have them tell her parents if you are not comfortable telling them yourself. The best thing you can do for her is getting her the professional help she needs and always being by her side when the path gets rough. She is really lucky to have a friend like you! – Nicole, 17, New JerseyIf she's saying she doesn't want to feel anymore pain, she may be considering suicide. You should tell an adult immediately, such as a counselor or a teacher. It's better to tell someone if you suspect that her life is on the line. – Alli, 17, USA
