Cha Chi xxxxxxxxxxx
19 y/o college freshman athlete battling depression and thoughts of suicide

Depression, suicide and challenges of a college freshman.

My daughter is a basketball player who has had trouble severe depression. She often thinks of killing herself and once tried. She also has chosen at this time to stop playing basketball and switch colleges, has had surgery for a third time on her right knee and now is failing academics at her current college due to this depression. Please pray that God would heal her knee, give her the knowledge and desire to complete her academics this spring with guidance for which college to go to and that HE would totally cure her of this depression.

We're sorry your daughter feels so badly right now. It sounds as if she would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources she could try. We hope she will contact one of them as soon as possible. She deserves to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If she is in the U.S., she can call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When she calls this free number, she will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in her region. The sooner she makes this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If she can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. By sending an e-mail to she will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website she may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

She is in our prayers.
