Dealing with depression


Many students are struggling with depression and loneliness from being isolated at home and not being able to be with friends and teachers.  While we all hope schools can re-open soon, here are some tips for dealing with depression from socially isolating at home.

Tip 1: Talk to an adult you trust
Depression is not your fault, and you didn’t do anything to cause it. However, you do have some control over feeling better. The first step is to ask for help.

It may seem like there’s no way your parents will be able to help, especially if they are always nagging you or getting angry about your behavior. If your parents are abusive in any way, or if they have problems of their own that makes it difficult for them to take care of you, find another adult you trust (such as a relative, teacher, counselor, or coach). 

No matter what, talk to someone, especially if you are having any thoughts of harming yourself or others. Asking for help is the bravest thing you can do, and the first step on your way to feeling better.

Tip 2: Try not to isolate yourself—it makes depression worse
Depression causes many of us to withdraw into our shells. You may not feel like seeing anybody or doing anything and some days just getting out of bed in the morning can be difficult. But isolating yourself only makes depression worse. So even if it’s the last thing you want to do, try to force yourself to stay social. As you reach out into and connect with others, you’ll likely find yourself starting to feel better.

Tip 3: Adopt healthy habits
Making healthy lifestyle choices can do wonders for your mood. Things like eating right, getting regular exercise, and getting enough sleep have been shown to make a huge difference when it comes to depression.  Aim for eight hours of sleep each night. Feeling depressed as a teenager typically disrupts your sleep. Whether you’re sleeping too little or too much, your mood will suffer.

Tip 4: Manage stress and anxiety
For many teens, stress and anxiety can go hand-in-hand with depression. Unrelenting stress, doubts, or fears can sap your emotional energy, affect your physical health, send your anxiety levels soaring, and trigger or exacerbate depression.

Tips for managing stress

  • Exercise, meditation, muscle relaxation, and breathing exercises are good ways to cope with stress.
  • If exams or classes seem overwhelming, talk to a teacher or school counselor, or find ways of improving how you manage your time.
  • If you’re struggling to fit in or dealing with relationship, friendship, or family difficulties, talk your problems over with someone - your school counselor or a professional therapist. 
  • If you have a health concern you feel you can't talk to your parents about,  such as a pregnancy scare or drug problem, talk to your school counselor or seek medical attention at a clinic or see a doctor.  They can guide you towards appropriate treatment (and help you approach your parents if that's necessary).
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization helping  lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth under 25 find help dealing with problems, especially thoughts of suicide.  They have put together online support and information for dealing with social isolation and other issues.

Trevor Project Support Center   Find answers to questions; explore resources related to sexual orientation, gender identity, coming out, sexual health wth  more; and phone, text or chat with counselors. 
https://www.thetrevorproject.org/resources/trevor-support-center/

Trevor Space   International social media site where youth can chat with other LGBT youth; join or start discussion groups; find groups that share your interests such as writing, cars, music; etc.

Kitsap Safe Schools cannot provide in-person training and support while there is a risk of coronavirus transmission.  Below are information and resources to help support youth and staff while many are engaged with distance, online learning.
The Kitsap Safe Schools is concerned about many LGBTQ students - especially those who do not have supportive families - who have been isolating at home and are now attending virtual school.  For many coronavirus has both robbed them of access to supportive environments and has increased negative contacts.
    
During the COVID-19 quarantine, educators across the country are learning how to continue to provide a safe and affirming experience for LGBTQ students via distance learning.  Below is information about and for LGBTQ students.

According to HRC’s 2018 LGBTQ Youth Report:
      67% of LGBTQ students hear their families make negative comments about LGBTQ people.  While some students are open about their LGBTQ identity at school, only 21% are out at home.
     Privacy and confidentiality are critically important for LGBTQ youth, especially for those who do not have supportive families. Extreme rejecting behaviors can have dire consequences: LGBTQ youth of color often face additional stress and adverse impacts on their health and well-being as a result of bias around their intersecting identities.
     Educators are uniquely positioned to provide support and resources to LGBTQ students who are now more at risk due to the pandemic. NEA EdJustice and HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools have joined together to offer a checklist and resources to help educators and allies navigate how to best support LGBTQ students as schools make this unprecedented pivot to distance learning. The checklist:
  • Does your virtual classroom include visible signs, like Zoom backgrounds or posters, showing that you are LGBTQ affirming?
  • Are you establishing trust with LGBTQ students by using gender-inclusive and non-heteronormative language such as “students” instead of “boys and girls” and “family” or “caring adult” instead of “mom and dad”?
  • Can you confirm a private, virtual connection with an LGBTQ student that is not supported at home, so you can check-in with them about their family dynamic and brainstorm self-care strategies?
  • Have you addressed the greater risk for LGBTQ cyberbullying — as students overall spend more time online during this period of social isolation — by using teachable moments to stop negative anti-LGBTQ language and behavior?
  • With LGBTQ drop-in centers closed and LGBTQ student clubs (i.e. GSA’s) no longer in session, are you sharing direct, online LGBTQ resources with your students that provide affirming support and connection for LGBTQ youth in virtual settings day or night — including the Trevor Project which offers 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year confidential and online support for LGBTQ youth?
 The Trevor Project recommends the following to LGBTQ youth:
1.  Non-judgmental stance. Do not judge yourself or your reactions. You are allowed to feel your emotions without “shoulding” on yourself.
2.  Disconnect. Find time each day to disconnect from screens. I mean ALL screens. No phone, iPad, computer or TV. Use this time to center yourself without input from other people.
3.  Connect. Schedule online time with people with whom you have healthy connections. Even a 10 minute conversation can be helpful.
4.  Educate yourself. You may have special circumstances regarding housing or transitioning. Look for local resources to help you find out your rights and what you can do. Educate yourself about COVID-19 and try to use more mainstream sources like the CDC. Having actual information will decrease your anxiety.
5.  Find calm. Figure out what works for you to find calm – music, working out, connecting with people, drawing, etc. You may want to alternate these activities because they may become less effective if you rely on them too heavily.
6.  Set a schedule. Having a schedule for the day provides structure and some degree of certainty in your life.
7.  Go outside. You can go outside! Even if you are an indoorsy person, being outside for fresh air will do wonders for your mood. Obviously, you want to maintain six feet from other folks, but you are allowed outside. Try to find time every day!
8.  Find the little things. You don’t have to do anything major to feel better. Sometimes it’s the small things that help the most, such as taking a moment to enjoy the candy you are eating, listening to the birds, or the excitement of a new game. There are many small moments in the day. Try to find a few.
9.  Get help. You are not alone. We are here for you at the The Trevor Project, 24/7. There are also other resources including online psychotherapy and support. Rules around telehealth have been relaxed in this crisis, and it is easier than ever to find a clinician to see you online. There are also apps that could be helpful to you.
10. Don’t give up. This will pass. Just like any emotion, all of the ones above will reach a peak and subside. Engage in your wellness strategies, reach out to someone (we are here!), or talk a walk. The human body was not meant to maintain intense negative emotions. If you ride out the wave, it will diminish. As humans, we are pretty predictable in that way.
