    "there is help"

    "If you find yourself with several of these symptoms, and they last more than a few days, there is help."

    The underlined part could mean you need help, couldn't it?

    Re: "there is help"

    Not necessarily.

    Please state the source and author of your quoted sentence.

    Re: "there is help"

    Hello Rover.

    Please see:


    When You're Sad and Lonely...


    If you find yourself with several of these symptoms, and they last more than a few days
    , there is help. A competent mental health professional can diagnose depression and make recommendations for other treatment options. These might include ongoing "talk therapy" and a referral to a physician for treatment with antidepressants.

    Re: "there is help"

    It is a shortened form of "There is help available [to you]". The main meaning is "If you have symptoms, it is possible to obtain help".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "there is help"

    I agree. "There is help available" is far better than "There is help".
