Need help to deal with severe depression...

User Profile
I have been dealing with sever depression for a very long time and it hasn't gotten any better. Whenever i show that i am depressed or suicidal, i get yelled at by my parents and am told to ''snap out of it'' or '' get yourself under control''
I don't know how to deal with this. I have repeatedly told my parents that i have depression and they brush it off like its nothing... I feel like whenever i have an issue, my parents push it aside and tell me to take care of it myself. I need help but don't know how to get it. I need some urgent advise.. can someone please help me and reply?

Hello! I am so sorry you are suffering. You do need to get some help and depression is treatable. I don't know how old you are, but you need to find someone to help you. Maybe a counselor at school? Or a family doctor? There are lots of resources out there. If you are feeling suicidal, there are hotlines you can call to speak to someone. I'm sure your parents love you and just don't understand exactly what depression is and what it can do to a person. Please seek out some help - there's a wonderful life waiting out there for you!!
