help with depressed brother
Posted by Lisa Jane x on 1 August 2017.
My brother has depression, and he was really suicidal about 2 years ago but he gradually got better, but he smoked a lot of weed during it too which i assume didn't help. He was doing really well but he's recently got worse again and i can't tell if he's smoking weed again or he's unhappy. He's nearly 20 and I'm 17 and i don't feel like i can ask him how he is, and my mum worries a lot, and I'm just scared he isn't being as open about how he's feeling, or is it just the weed making this happen. i don't even know how to deal with it as my friends can't relate and feel bad exposing my brother and it's not really a discussion point. Any advice/suggestions would be great. Xx
