Hi Guest!! What's on your mind?
How can someone help him or herself to rise above Depression ?

Good evening everyone,

I'd love to have suggestions and ideas on how I can help a friend to rise above depression. Currently he is out of job for almost 2 years now and every effort to secure job fails and facing lots of difficulties. He is a Computer Science HND Graduate. I have noticed him disassociating himself from friends, social life or things that possibly make him lively. I tried my best by talking to him in ways I thought it could help but nothing has changed. He told me all that do comes to his mind everyday is suicide which I am afraid it could happen someday, God forbid.

Please your advises are needed and your suggestion might save someone's life. 

Tank you.

Depression is never a good state, all we need to do for a depressed fellow is show the person love, sometimes it difficult for the person to push himself out of that she'll but constantly being around and showing love to the person will definitely help. 
I will also suggest that the person listen to motivational speaker,most are air on radio station within the country, from there you will certainly notice some changes you can also encourage the person to associate himself with any religious society of his faith with this I believe he will be fine as nothing is too difficult for God to change.

Prayers and self believe is all you need. So what if you are poor, unpretty, too short, too fat, in exposed etc. Whatever the reason, nothing last for ever. Those who have made it today valued their self worth and struggled despite the odds until they made it. Don't let negative issues get the best of you. What people say about you or do to you is not a real reflection of who they are. They could be suffering from low self esteem and theirs could be worse than yours and can only feel better if they take it out on someone else. Look for books, that counsel people on how to overcome sadness. Engage your self, keep yourself busy and give bitter thought little or no time and say bye bye to depression.
