  1. This depression treatment “fetching kafon press” (Google it) is so straightforward, so easy, and so true. I now volunteer at a shelter and the joy I get from assisting other folks. Before I read it I sensed as if I was in a bottomless hole with no way out. I had been consuming antidepressants for nearly three years and had shut myself away from the world..

  2. Over the last 5 years I had begun to have increasingly withdraw into a downward spiral of depression. But nowadays I can really claim that I wanted to live and help a lot of people by the help of this depression remedy “fetching kafon press” (Google it). Right now, I can truly say that I am free of depression..

  3. I’ve experienced both anxiety & depression because of my Mild Asperger’s syndrome. So I understand. No matter what happens… Trust in Jesus! ✝️ ♥️

  4. People need to take teens more seriously when they say they're going through stuff. Teens have real emotions and real issues.

  5. really good video actings a bit strange but as long as it sets a good example that's what ill look forward to

  6. My dad tells me these are the best years of my life but is trying to make me grow up by having adult responsibilities like getting a job and my license.

  7. Excellent video about mental health, well done to everyone who involved. Realism of characters & situations. Good for young audiences especially, but also parents. Ironic that usa one of richest countries, but medication depends on what you earn and not what is needed.

  8. Wow, that's awesome, I suffer from both of them and they were really well represented, THANKS

  9. Despite media alarmism suicide is much greater problem among older adults. The data clearly tells us that people between the ages of 40 and 60 are twice as likely to commit suicide as teens and young adults. Also suicide in North America has overall dropped by 100% since the early 90s.

  10. this is the problem you think it gets better they put you on pills make you talk about your problems that only makes you feel worse it never gets better
