I don't know how old you are, but you might start things off with a visit to your doctor for an evaluation. If you are a minor, anti-depressants may help, but your doctor should make sure they are safe - medically - for your to take. Sometimes all it takes to lift the depression is a low dose of an anti-depressant.

If your doctor deems you too young, ask for a recommendation for a good counselor that you can talk to. If you don't want to use your doctor to get a recommendation, try your school's counselor - they might have a list.

Also try 211 on your phone - that should connect you to services through United Way. Or you can try the YMCA or YWCA - both offer low cost counseling.

A personal opinion - get yourself a spiral notebook and start journaling your thoughts and feelings and see if you can't see a trend. Sometimes it just helps to vent on paper what's bugging you. Having it down on paper might also help you to see what it is you need to work on.  Good luck.

I would try talking to your doctor first. Maybe they can help you by recommending a certain diet, exercise, or even medicine  if necessary. I don't know if you're a bible reader. One othe things that I have found helpful is prayer and reading the bible.  I've found that the book of psalms to be very comforting  especially chapters 34-38. One of my favorite scriptures is Psalms 34:18: "Jehovah is close  to the broken hearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit." Hope this is  helpful to you and I hope you fell better soon

There are some things that you can do personally to cope. These include eating a nutritious diet (including fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain cereals); avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and sugar; exercising in moderation. Talking with someone who will listen and understand is very encouraging as well. Maintain a positive outlook. Be healthy, stay happy! :)
