Act

If you think someone is depressed, here is a comprehensive site with suggestions about what to do.

If you think that someone is you, here's a good page to start on.

If you think that someone is me, go eff yourself.

No, not really. Just simulating one response you might get --- to warn you that the person you try to help might not exactly welcome it.

Act anyway.

Untreated, depression can be fatal.

But there are remarkably effective treatment options.

Act.

My girlfriend gets really depressed...I have been looking into the subject since I met her. I, for one, have no clue what it is like, so I have to read up on the subject and look for first hand advice.
