You can help someone with depression by showing them support and love. Urge the depressed person to seek treatment, while listening to their problems patiently. Offer positive reinforcement, urge the person to take self-care steps, and help find organizations to offer professional behavioral health services.
Don't let anyone tell you that just because depression is a common mood disorder, it isn't a serious issue.
Depression is serious. For help with depression stemming from substance abuse issues, contact Primary Purpose Behavioral Health today.
