Take her to the hospital or contact a local mental health professional immediately. If you dont do it right away,you will find its too late to do anything at all.

Well, I fully understand how your daughter feels, I am in her kind of attitude myself a lot of the time. The thing is, it depends what triggered this all. She may be acting out for attention or simply miserable in her life. Tell her to talk to someone, if not you, then someone at Connexions or another youth counsellor group. Make her see that talking through her problems in the long run will ease some of her pain. Talking to someone who can relate to how she feels will help her immensely as well. She's not on her own.

doctors and counsillors are not the way to go on this one. My friends pushed me into seeing doctors and all he did was give me pills which i later tried to over dose on. You need to sit her down and try to talk to her maybe consult her best friend. at least shes crying not hiding it all in and expressing it through music these are outlets for her emotions shed be alot worse off without them.

Many people become this way, its very hard for some teens to go thru life if they've had bad or truamatizing expeirences. I'm a 15 your old girl myself and i've cut myself for years, im suicidal but i want to change it for others, your daughter i dont think is crying out for attention, she is in need, look at her past and current traumas and talk to her about it if you can, show her you really care, but DO NOT pressure her or force her to do or talk about anything, it makes it all worse, be gentyle and understanding, dont jump to conclusions but be the shoulder she needs to cry on, be worried about her state but dont collapse under pressure, then you cant help your daughter..
Some people suggest hospitals and anti depressants, but thats not the first option try to work it out first and if all else fails, yes bring her to a professional but dont force anything she doesnt want, i know what its like and i hate it soo much. You daughter is delicate, breaking slowly, you have to pick the pieces up with her...

Don't worry. it is just a fase. every teenage girl feels weak, small and hopeless. its just because she feels lost inside. tell her that shes not alone and that many other girls such as myself know exactly what shes going through.

sometimes u just need to be our mates and i have depression so i know what it means to have a mate. it makes things alot easier. i think it alot easier to have someone to talk to 

Name: sarai | Date: Apr 18th, 2006 6:21 AM

i know what your daughter is going through...maybe you should find ways to cheer her up like first try cooking her favorite food...or take her out and do something with her that you know makes are happy..you know something to get her mind of whatever is maker her depressed....so her how good her life is without whatever is making her depressed..and if non of that works maybe you should just leave her alone...i mean i wish my mom would just leave me alone sometimes...think about how well you know your daughter and take it in to good use...

my mum had, and is still having the same problem with me. i am 15 and have just recently been diagnosed with severe depression and i would have to say that the most important thing that you have to remember is to be patient with your daughter, otherwise you may push her away by trying to "interfear" with her issues to much. you have to wait untill she is readyto admit that she has a problem. it took me 3 years to admit to having a problem, but my mum showed me that she supportedme by trying to let me work it out..

Have you gotten any replies from this? I am also worried but it is for my granddaughter, She displays a lot of the signs your daughter does. I'm looking for people who are going through this and trying to find some solutions. How is your daughter doing now? 

Name: adam | Date: Apr 23rd, 2006 9:35 AM

Name: kirst | Date: Apr 30th, 2006 11:32 AM
well i was depressed for a year becuase of various things, i nearly walked in front of a car and stuff like that... im 15 now and i got over depression by myself but its very hard not to slip back into it... anyway i suggest you just show her what shes got to live for, how much you care about her and that you are there for her...
one thing though there is always labels being given to people my age like emo or goth if someone has told her shes an emo she could just be acting on that.

i feel the same way your daughter feel 

Name: Dixie | Date: May 5th, 2006 11:24 PM
I think you should take her to a dr. and becarefull with the anti-depresants.I just to take some and made things wors I became unable to sleep and I couln't consentrate on things. I was depressed because my uncle who was my mothers brother and who also was like the dad I never had passed away.Thank God I learned to live with the fact that hes in a better place. Good Luck. and I hope that you get profesional help for the best.

Maybe something happened at school with the other girls or a boyfriend maybe? I read some of the other replies and they have said councelling and I agree with them. If she wont though ,and she hasnt got any friends she can confide in ,has she got a close cousin? or someone like that? 

Name: Sarah G | Date: May 6th, 2006 5:32 PM
My 15 year old brother has recentley been diagnosed with clinical depression and I feel like our world has collapsed. There is sometimes nothing external that triggers it, it is a chemical im balance. He has had suicidal thoughts and wanted to jump off a bridge so he has been admetted to a hospital. He has been there 2 months and is on ant depressants, I do think they've helped. I really want to know if he is likely to get over this or if he'll be depressed forever. I'm so worried for his safety, when he comes out who knows what will happen. I love him so much this pains me to see him like this. Can anyone help or understand?

being a teen is so confusing ......... how old is she? im 19 and i have tryed to kill myself over 3 times i think you need to just let her be maybe have her friends talk to her and dont yell at her about it i know its also very confusing for you to but maybe you dont spend time with her she probally doesnt want to tho . The main thing is you need to listen to her on matter what she has to say even if its not good it doesnt mean try and talk to her just listen to her when she does talk .....i think she will be fine.....just give her time she will thank you later.

I feel the same way as your daughter. On friday my bf broke up with me and after all that was all said and done I was driving home and totaled my car, it wasn't my fault though. Although I admit I was upset on the way home. I have done nothing but cry this whole weekend. I feel so depressed!
