Can you advise this student nurse?
“I don’t want to sound dramatic but I’m starting to think I might be depressed and I really don’t know what to do.
“Basically, I’m in the third year of my course and really feeling the pressure. I’m worried and just feel unhappy all the time.
“I’ve managed to behave as if nothing’s wrong when I’m around people, so if I started saying to my friends or anyone that I was depressed they’d probably just think I was attention seeking. I’m wondering whether I need to stop acting, so that I can tell people how I feel. Does that make sense?
“I’m not suicidal or anything like that, I’m just unhappy. What can I do?”
