My wonderful 16yr. old son has been suffering from depression for 4 months. He has gone from being an honors student to getting D's. He has major lack of motivation and concentration. He's taking med. and therapy. He seems to be doing a little better, but has bad days. We're very close and he asks for help when he needs me, he calls me "his rock", but his depression is taking a toll on me. It's hard to see him not being able to complete a simple homework. He's kind and maybe too mature for his age. He's been called "an old soul" and seems to feel better around adults than his own peers. He has low self-esteem. He's so stressed out just thinking about school. I don't know what else to do. Please give me some advice.
