Man i hate to say it but a lot of kids now a days are getting really depressed. Personally i think the reason is the girls or crowd of people they hang around with. I have a really good friend and he's been so depressed he decent even answer the phone anymore,and when i ask why are you so down he just breaks down crying. When i talk to his girlfriend she tells me she gets scared because he says things like killing himself,self mutilation's.etc and when i hear that i just want to cry. But as his bestfriend i told him that we would over come his problem together...and what do you know all he needed to know is that he did have real friends in the world and he will be a good person as long as you stick to your dreams and stay bright you could do anything.But what do you think causes kids to go in that depression state, and what do you think you could do to help them.
