I Don't Know What To DoMy 17 year old son has been diagnosed with depression , he says he needs help but whenever I try he shuts down and won't say anything. He recently went to the emergency room after telling someone he was going to kill himself, I was scared, hurt and confused.
He is on medication and has only missed it twice and both those times he had issues.
My worry is he'll be 18 soon and there will be no more chances and his only step will be jail.
he says he wants to work but cannot find a job, he has so much time on his hands all he does is think and yes sometimes I am afraid of him, but on the other hand I would do anything for him because he is my son and I love him dearly
