School counseling is basically "more school".

Not to mention more brainwashing and emotional manipulation. They flat out say shit like "You're only feeling this way because you disobeyed our authority."

Lol I remember my SpED teacher kept harping on about how my "auwtizm" (she pronounced it that way) made us function "differently" which was fucking bullshit given that I only have ADHD.

Basically though, I was the fucking problem, not the school. While in hindsight I definitely had a lot of issues the way they approached it was fucking deplorable. Fuck you SpED.

Jacob Zuma did, because of his idiotic policies.

Agree on emotional manipulation! But were teachers taught at the university to use this method? I assume it as inappropriate, cuz it influences my mood and it always seems to me that it's too easy for me to be manipulated.

If school is making you suicidal - Try to stop going to school as much as you possibly can. I know it's hard with people nagging you, maybe threatening you or even physically forcing you to go... but your life is important, far more important than some grades or your parents' approval. Join these forums and talk to us - we will try to understand and help as much as we can. Hug
Also, Read about alternatives to school.

If school is constantly making you depressed - There's a lot of stupid information about depression out there in the world. If school is depressing you, it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you or the chemicals in your brain. School is a depressing and unnatural environment, and your depression is a totally natural reaction to it. Getting out would probably be the best thing to do (but far from the easiest thing to do, as you can probably imagine).

Here are some sensible things to read about depression as it relates to school:

Why I believe depression is not a mental illness

Society causes depression

What causes teen depression?

Intelligent people are more likely to be depressed

Depression and school:
I'm thinking depression is a critical effect of the lack of control teens have over their lives. The fact that it seems universally acceptable to deny young people the right to some or any control over their lives at a developmental point where they should be practicing making choices and learning from successes and failures in a safer environment than they will have when they leave home -- that seems utterly nonsensical.

My point is this: frustration and anger at lack of control in school and at home is a reasonable response. Lack of power to change the situation leads to head injury from banging against brick walls. But the brick walls don't move, and it is again a perfectly reasonable response to become depressed.

Convincing Parents
Convincing your parents or legal guardian to consider alternative schooling (or no schooling at all for that matter) is tricky, but if done efficiently it may be one of the prime factors that decides your fate and whether or not your parents will back you on any decisions you make yourself.

Some thoughts about therapy / counseling:

If you're lucky to find a good counselor, it can help a lot. So to anyone who wants to try that - keep in mind you might have to try a few different people before you find one that feels right for you. They're only human, after all, and vary about as wildly as all the other people do. Don't be afraid to ditch a therapist if they're not helping you, and especially if they're making you feel worse.

Thoughts? What would you add to this?



Friends, Love ones, and family has the most positive result with this king of tendencies. And of-course the feeling of not being alone.
