    Depression is a serious problem. If not addressed right at the beginning it takes over individuals mind and actions and soon start to command and control the victim by becoming a inner voice. No one other than the victim will ever come to know the destructive power of this hidden voice until the tragic end. Try to be content, happy ,loving and kind to yourself and others. May be this will help. But most importantly seek professional support.

    Have no words to express my feelings... another budding life squashed !!! Warning to one and all !!! Kindly do not take depression lightly from possible family and any acquaintances, know to you.. they give distressing signals, about their hopeless, pain. They are patients, who need urgent emotional support and counseling, under a physiatrist !!! Rest in eternal peace !!!

    Its easy to say that suicide is not the solution or to speculate on the reason for suicide. Only the person going through depression knows what it feels like. The sooner we accept that mental health is important and that mental illnesses are real and can be treated, many lives can be saved.

    Here nothing is mentioned about his father. Mother is a nurse, probably working in three shifts. He is an only child, no siblings. Long term feeling of loneliness, can ultimately lead to depression. Though, the doctor advised to have a change of atmosphere, the best thing would have been, the mother's company in the new atmosphere would have been more helpful. Of course, mother had to go to work, hence she allowed his friend to take him.

    Mother and the boy are victims of circumstances. May his soul rest in peace. May God give her courage to go through this loss.

    There were sufficient warnings. Cant imagine the guilt the mother will feel all her days till she dies. May God be gracious to her and comfort her.

    Can't believe. Shocked. No words to console you Cinthu.

    Only praying to God to pour his blessings on you to stay strong and bear the huge loss.

    You were a great mother who did everything for him. He only knew what made him to take this step.

    May the departed soul rest in peace.
