Depression - help at school

Stay aware

  • Let me know that you are aware that I am feeling down - but do it in a subtle way.

Don't ignore me

  • Though I may present as withdrawn or not interested, do not ignore me.
  • I may find it harder than usual to participate in lessons, but if I can I will.

Help me with my work

  • Help me catch up on work that I may have missed due to absence, or if I find it hard to focus on classwork or homework.

Extra time

  • If you can give me some extra time after class I may be able to take advantage of this and catch up.

Don't give up

  • Please keep trying to help me even if I appear not to care.
  • I can't help this but when I can take up your offer of help I will, and I will be grateful that you did not give up on me!

It makes a huge difference for me to know that there is an adult at my school who knows all about my condition and who I can talk to if I am worried or unwell.
