Supporting Someone with Depression

Chances are you know someone who is struggling with depression and want to know how to help them. Here are some things you can do to offer support: 1) Validate their condition and let them feel heard. 2) Avoid telling them to think positively or shaming them. Instead, try to focus on positive things in your conversations with them. 3) Encourage them to adhere to their medication schedule, since it can take time for medications to work. 4) Suggest that they keep a journal to write about their feelings and keep track of medication progress and their mood.
