Everyone likes a bit of encouragement; it brightens your day and makes you feel appreciated. If you have a friend who is depressed or down – take a moment to show them you care. A text message, an email, a phone call, a funny picture posted on their facebook page, or even taking them to lunch will brighten their day. If someone tells you they are depressed, don’t leave them hanging with silence. That’s the last thing they need. They are reaching out to you for help and support. It’s the little things that mean the world to them at that moment.
