a e s t h e t i c Boi : Can you please make a video about therapy? My mom has been wanting me to go back to therapy because it's 'good for me' but I just couldn't get it to work for me when I first tried it. Maybe if you could explain more about it so that me and other people thinking about therapy could understand it and be more comfortable it could help other people too? By the way, I love your videos and I really enjoyed this one and I think it helped a lot of people understand what you fought through. Thank you for reading, Dan :) <3

A Commenter : So uh Dan... I dunno the symptoms of depression but to be honest I hate myself, I think I'm not good enough and I've been considering self harm all because of school. In school I do metalwork but it is horrible, it has made me consider self harm and I've been close to doing it because of metalwork. I am so bad at metalwork that I really hate myself for it, I need to get away from that toxic subject in school but I can't because I'm 14 and it's a whole 3 years until I can leave something that makes me actually consider self harm. The teacher is sexist and hates me because I'm bad at the subject. All of this makes me really want to... what do I do in this situation? I need a therapist but I'm 14 and I am not telling my parents no matter what nor am I telling the school counseler because they will tell my parents. I really need to know what to do and the internet is the only place where people won't tell my parents.

ihavesomanysubscriberscauseofmylongchannelname : proud of you for making this❤

jdcupcake 040904 : So I’m 13, and I think I’m depressed. The way Dan described his depression is almost exactly like how I’ve been feeling. I would have depressive episodes about once a week, but I’ve been in this consistent low mood for almost two months now. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve become suicidal and self-harmed. I didn’t think life was worth living anymore and, as a result, I now have a scar on my arm that will remind me of this for the rest of my life. I have spoken to my friends, parents and members of school staff about it, so I’m trying to get help, and hopefully I will go to my schools Student Nurse to see what’s up. My only concern is that, because I’m 13 and my hormones are everywhere, I will be told that I’m fine and that it’s all apart of growing up, but I feel as if it’s more than that. In the meantime though my teachers are going to monitor me to see how I’m doing and see if there’s anything they can do. I’m getting help, and that never would’ve happened if I didn’t open up about my mental health, and I honestly believe that I wouldn’t have opened up about my mental health if it wasn’t for you Dan, so thank you. You are helping me get better. You are helping so many people get better. Thank you thank you thank you!! Please keep raising the awareness of mental health, and keep being awesome!! ❤️❤️❤️ (Ps- see you and Phil in London for II!! Hopefully I will be in a better mental state there, even if it’s just the slightest change)

Nixon Lewis : I like memes wanna be friends

Theatric_Musician : I'm always coming back to this video. Thank you again Dan. I'm not diagnosed with depression but I'm diagnosed with three different types of anxiety. It's being ruling my life for as long as I can remember and I experience mental health issues differently than you, but it's nice to see someone who I look up to share their story. I've always been told to hide my experiences with anxiety or else people will hate me, but seeing how someone can openly share and have such a positive response is so touching. Thank you Dan, thank you so much. I'm in theatre and it's really emotionally involved but I spoke up about my anxiety and everyone has been so supportive. A bunch of people have their own struggles and I even feel my anxiety being less scary because I'm acknowledging it and people know I'm working through it. I actually use to pass out because my anxiety is so bad and I haven't passed out in months. The simple action of discussing my anxiety has made it less scary and is helping me work through it. So thank you. Honestly, I can't thank you enough. I really look up to you even more now. I'm glad you have people who are there for you.
