Telling an adult that a friend might be depressed is betraying a trust. If someone wants help, he or she will get it.

Fact

Depression, which saps energy and self-esteem, interferes with a person's ability or wish to get help. And many parents may not understand the seriousness of depression or of thoughts of death or suicide. It is an act of true friendship to share your concerns with a school guidance counsellor, a favourite teacher, your own parents, or another trusted adult.
