How do you convince your 18 year old teen that you think they need to consider that they are depressed? My son exhibits many of the signs of being depressed but when you bring the subject up he adamantly denies it. He feels that admitting this shows weakness. My wife and I have both been diagnosed with depression and feel extremely better since beginning treatment (pharma and counseling). Talking to a counselor is also a ‘no no’ in my son's opinion as well.
