Be careful not to judge. People with depression are often shy or reluctant to talk out. Be honest with the person and don’t judge them. Give the person enough time to respond. Remember that even people who are depressed may not be weak. This is why it is important to remember this. Sometimes they may believe that they are mentally strong enough to make it on their own. Instead of being judgemental, you can ask them questions about how they feel. You will be able to confirm their feelings and show that you care.

Encourage the person to seek treatment for depression

You can provide support for someone who is feeling down. Reach out to your friends and family to offer therapy. You can also help if you’re a friend or parent by suggesting that you engage in conversations with trusted colleagues. Do not encourage someone you know who is struggling with depression to seek help. This could lead to more resistance. Encourage them to seek out help, and avoid “enabling”. Enabling refers to when you encourage someone’s behavior without realizing it and then remove any negative consequences. You should not “save someone from depression”.

While you cannot force someone with depression to seek treatment, it is possible to help them explore other options. It is important to understand that depression recovery can take time and patience. Be patient with someone you love if they are showing signs of depression. Do your research. You should seek help if the person doesn’t want it.
