Hello people! My name is Helen and I'm 17 from the west midlands in the UK. I have been depressed for about 5 years and diagnosed for about 2, last year I attempted to commit suicide, I took an overdose. Surprisingly enough it did not work and I'm still here today. I decided to join today because I wrote a letter to my counselor today, unfortunately my mum found it and has threatened to either leave or get me admitted into a secure unit. I have been very depressed recently and have often considered committing suicide. The only thing that has stopped me is that when I feel very down I believe I'm not even worth the trouble caused by me killing myself.
