Self-Diagnosis

throughout my teenage years my friend was constantly going to the doctors to talk about the possibility of her having depression and anxiety, the doctors always dismissed her and said it was just teenage hormones, as soon as she was a legal adult she was automatically branded with depression and anxiety yet why were the doctors so reluctant to diagnois her at 16,17? really bizzare.

Hey, you raise a valid point.

It does differ from area to area and often the services have thresholds that must be reached before they refer onto services like CAMHS. It's tough though when you are just trying to access help and support.
