Most importantly it should be free and anonymous. Any suggestions?

The qualified won’t do the counselling for free and talking to an unqualified might is not a good idea (Especially the advice part)
What you need is a conversation with someone who can understand you, got enough patience to listen to you – Which is obviously hard to find from free counsellors
^^ AND yeah, Anonymous is good.. can share about anything without the fear or being judged (& even if someone dies, it doesn’t matter)

Indeed, there’s no free lunch. Thanks for your concern. pray

your own mind is against you when you are in depression everything seems an endless dark cave….. what helps is people around you because you may not feel like expressing but you have to. Paid help costs so much and not everyone can afford it . Don’t push away people. Don’t lose hope. Nights are the worst try to improve your schedule. Keep yourself Busy in any kind of work. Try to be around people as much as possible. Go in park see people , see stories, see emotions. if company is available stay away from phone as much as possible , overthinking is an outcome of this and social media increases that.

Bhai, if one wants counselling then I would strongly suggest to take 1-1 session with a seasoned professional. Anonymous thing wont work because depression is a disease. It’s not like to have a church confession. That’s movie stuff. In my line work reasons are not important effects are. Same applies here. One might think that one is depressed because one is dumped/failed in exam/lost dear ones/got betrayed. No. Tons of people get betrayed/dumped/failed in exams etc. Depression is a natural effect. But but, pathological depression doesn’t go away. It is a cyclical process. It will come to you after a while. It needs proper medication, lifestyle changes, etc. People often try to superimpose depression over anxiety and think that they both are synonymous. That’s incorrect. https://www.verywellmind.com/am-i-anxious-40456...;

A professional should personally diagnose the patient. 🙂

Don’t try desperately to be flawless. Accept your flaws and embrace them, it would make your heart and mind lighter. Everyone is struggling with something in their life, it’s not just you, stay strong.

Like others said nobody cares enough to think of the best for you here. Even if the intentions are good they don’t have the expertise too. Paying money for peace of mind is a great investment, don’t hesitate or be ashamed to take professional help.

If you feel like you’re depressed go to a psychiatrist and talk it out

I know some of my friends who are amazing psychiatrist in the making

The doctors are supposed to keep all the conversation anonymous so that takes care of the anonymity but it’s not gonna be free
Take care buddy..hope you come out stronger

You don’t really understand what depression means clinically.


When someone talks about being depressed, people get judgmental and conclude that the other person is facing some problem with their life.

But this is not it, depression is a state of mind, where it enters into with no particular reason.

Someone could be happy and fulfilled, but still be depressed. 

That’s why people need to seek a professional to handle it in such situations and not a friend who can empathize.

We both atleast agree that it would be better to take professional help rather than from other people known/unknown.

Get a simple consultation done to specialist, he will prescribe some medication such as brain relaxants , some sleep enhancers , some vitamins like b12 , etc.
After that tty to keep occupied yourself with work , leisure , most importantly try to be social, meet friends relatives , try to be jovial and happy , avoid overthinking which is not easy when depressed , try your hands in gardening or any hobbies , avoid negative confused arrogant people.

I think u are not in depression, as depressed people never reveal or recognize the issue they are in

Join ISKON, participate actively in Bhajans for few weeks or months u may get lot of relief

remember everyone has issues, sometimes so many come together at a time that we reach snapping point, life goes on b’cos there is always a hope

Consult doctor and be on medication if that’s needed for you.

I take bupropion 150 mg extended release +fluoxetine 20 mg daily and it totally changed my life.
