first of all i want to thank everyone for letting me be part of this wonderful HELP LINE. My son is 16 years old and has depression. ( i also have depression and take meds). He refuses to admit anything is wrong, but just hangs around the house sad all the time. He has few friends and the few he has are pretty busy for the summer. He doesn't want to do anything i suggest and yet he's always saying he's bored. Any ideas on what i could do to cheer him up or get him out of the house would be wonderful. Thanks for any future ideas.
