What made you sad this week

It all pulls me down so much!

One day the security measures will be relaxed and at some point the crisis will be over. Then you can do everything again that you have to do without now, for example see your friends! Imagine exactly how it will be: where will it be? What will you do? Will the sun shine? How are you going then? Do you have to smile? These thoughts also help against your sadness!

Important: If you notice that none of this helps you and that you only get sadder and no longer want to live, then you are probably suffering from depressive moods or depression. Slight depressive moods through to severe depressive disorders are among the most common mental illnesses in children and adolescents. Did you know that? In Germany, about 3-10% of all adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 develop depression. So 3 to 10 out of 100 adolescents have a depression - regardless of Corona!

The good news, however, is that depression can be treated well, especially if people seek professional help early on. For you this means: Find more help. There are people who professionally take care of the worries and needs of young people. There are helpful telephone numbers for this, which you can also find here on this website.
