Depression can be experienced by anyone of any age. Some common symptoms are feelings of hopelessness/helplessness, teary mood, and feeling tired or sluggish. Suicidal thoughts are also seen with depression.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, I would highly recommend seeking support. Because you are a minor, having an honest conversation with a parent may be beneficial, as they can find an appropriate therapist that is best suited for you. At Insight Psychological, we have many therapists who would be able to help you.
