5. If someone is suffering from depression, what should I say to him/her?
Miss Peanut answers:Avoid saying something like “Relax!”, “Be Strong!”, “Just don’t think about it!”, or “I’m no better than you!” Instead, show your care about his/her feelings, such as “Though I can’t fully understand why you are so unhappy, I can see it’s been a hard time for you. I’ll be by your side!” Again, you should also encourage him/her to seek professional help.
