How do you cheer up someone who is clinically depressed?
I feel like whether were clinically depressed are just depressed about life in general. The best thing to do is to be there for that person,no matter what. If they are depressed they don't need to be alone.Being alone is the worst. Then they might get suicidal. You don't want that. Let them know you will always be there for them,no matter what. Listen to them and give them a shoulder to lean on. Be a friend. That is my opinion,I hope it helps.
Have a great day.
Unfortunately, clinical depression is usually a chemical inbalance and that means they would need to go to the doctor to be treated. Luckily, there are many things a person can do to just brighten someones mood. The most important thing is to be there for the person. Stay positive while you are around them (if you are having a bad day this is not the time to vent to them) Also, get some sunshine, it makes a person happy. And last but not least... smile. It is contagious and hopefully you will pass it on to your friend!
Good luck. Dealing with depression is hard!
I do agree with Rhonda and barbargirl! It is best to be there for that person. Sometimes they just need to get other people's perspective. They want to have their feeling valided. They don't want to feel alone. I would encourge that person to get some professional help. There is more they can do with the chemical imbalance. Remind them that they have you as a friend ot reach out to. I hope they will get through their depression.
You can't, but you can lend an ear and let them know that you care about their well being. Clinical depression involves medication and intense counseling from a psychiatrist.
Sorry I didn't clarify. I meant: how do you cheer up someone who is clinically depressed (and taking anti-depressants).
My friend is usually fine but there are times when she gets super depressed for no reason even though she's on pills. I'm trying to find ways to make her feel better without treating her like she's made out of glass. Any suggestions?
