Listen up, teens! You might have a new reason for your parents to NOT put your phone down! LOLz!
Or, if you really do have a serious problem with depression — this is another hope for you!
There's a California-based clinical psychologist that says his patients said that regular texts about their treatment helped boost their moods and improve their outlook. This means it can't just be any old text — it has to be specific and helpful.
The texts encouraged the patients to take their medications and keep a positive perspective… and it works!
Ask your doctor about this if you're suffering from depression — and ALWAYS let someone know if you are suffering and haven't told anyone yet.
There are millions of people out there like you and millions more that want to help!
