Issues on Depression

All of us go through rough times and how we cope is a different story. A big cry for help we see often is through self-harm, lots of kids do it and that's how they feel they can express their pain. Others choose to keep quiet about their depression, hoping someone will notice they aren't happy. Other kids think they are depressed, as depression is now considered a trend. To most of us this is a real issue we face everyday. What causes this? Why are we getting trendy about it? How do we help ourselves?   

Most reasons for depression is because we are heartbroken, or there are other  problems happening at home. Most of us don't know how to help ourselves so we revert to self harm. Self harm comes in the form of cutting or ripping out hair, but those aren’t the only ways.

Depression has probably became such a trend because when we feel heartbreak a lot of kids express it in poems. Some of these poems hit close to home for everyone. Now some kids don’t know the difference between being depressed and being sad.

If you really are depressed and are considering self harm there are ways you can get help. You can talk to your school counselor, or you parents. There is a suicide hotline you can call or text, the number is 1-800-273-8255. If you ever think about suicide please don’t because you are very much needed here.

While for years, the parking lot has been a problem, this year, a solution was formed: parking passes.
