It is really important that if you are feeling depressed that you seek out support in your family, community and from a mental health provider. You should feel comfortable with the counselor you select, respected, and have a sense that this is someone from whom you can learn. My recommendation is that you don’t give up and continually keep trying until you find someone that works. To find a counselor, check with:
- Tribal Clinic
- Your School, or University
- Mental Health America has a zip code locator to help you find clinics near you with low-cost or sliding scale services. They also have a Crisis hotline you can call: 1-800-273-TALK.
- Anxiety and Depression Association of America also has a zip code locator you can check out.
