  1. I am ready to ask my mom if I can get counseling. I am NOT ready to tell her about my depression/suicidal feelings/SHing, and I'm going to be using a different excuse for why I'd like counseling, and make it sound like no big deal. I would love some ideas/tips on how to ask her? I'm still nervous to because I don't want her expecting anything and I don't want to go about it in the wrong way or something.

    another thing, can Counselors tell your parents what you have told them? even if you ask them not to? I don't want my mom finding out about it, so...yeah!
    thanks in advance

    They are required by law to keep your privacy, but I think if they believe you are in danger of harming yourself, they can report you or possibly call your rents.
