I'm worried about my son as he not been sleeping again lately and doesn't want to go to school and says all his friends hate him and he hates his life. He doesn't want to do anything. Has lost interest in life and is so tired in the morning as can never sleep at night. Does anyone think he is depressed?

Those are definitely flags that he could be depressed. You don't mention how long its been going on or if this is a reaction to a rough situation (though you say his sleep is a problem "again," so I'm guessing this could be recurrent), but look into having him evaluated by a professional to see what he needs right now. Don't wait too long to do this... trust your gut. This is important. Good luck.

My doctor says I got to go through his school so rang Simon says last night and she agrees he does sound like his is depressed and suffering from grief after loss of both my parents. Got first meeting on the the 1st of June. Can't wait.
