im 17 and i feel really depressed.

I try talking to my daughters father/boyfriend and he won't listen. And my parents are too consumed with their own lives. I feel like I have no one to talk to. Where do I go to get help or what do I do?

  • Is there a counselor near you? You could ask for recommendations for low/no cost treatment options and for information on if there is a teen mother's group near you. Getting connected with people who are experiencing the same things you are is very important!

  • most areas have a crisis hotline. Folks there will listen. You can also go to a group for folks with depression. They are usually understanding and will listen to you but will probably want you to listen to them as well.

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.
