I have no clue what to do. My 15 year old son is depressed and has been for three or four months, with the last couple of months getting worse.
He won't to talk to me or his dad, has cut himself off from friends, refuses to talk to a counsellor or consider medication, won't do anything that might help lift his mood - go outside, do any activities.
He will only spend time in his (dark) room in bed or on his PC. His phone is pinging continually and he says he is talking to someone online but won't tell us any more than that - he says it is a positive influence but I have no idea who that person is and what they are saying.
His humour is totally up and down - from super angry to curled up in tears, with some laughter every once in a while.
He has self diagnosed Borderline Personality Disorder.
GP offered no advise.
He is mostly still going to school although it's becoming more of a struggle.
He has been self harming.
I just don't know what I can do to help him.
Any parents with advise - please let me know what you think
