well, it finally has happened - my drummer has gone emo

we're really good friends, and as an optimist, I hate the whole 'depressed' attitude, especially considering there aren't really any problems with his life - no addictions, well off parents, and good schooling + he's clever and a very good drummer!

Also, I'm a little worried he'll start cutting etc.

other than killing him, can anyone suggest a plan of action?

Kill everyone around him.

First off, that's a pretty ignorant assumption to make, and you sound like an asshole of a friend.

Why don't you actually ask him what's wrong, or see if you can help instead of acting like it's a joke?

Listen to Linkin Park with him. On his bed. At 3 AM. Hugging a pillow. With smudged mascara on your face.

Because emo kids are a joke. It's about attention 99% of the time, and the 1% don't act emo.

Leave him alone for a while. He'll die eventually, or he'll stop being emo.

He never said he is going to start, he said he is worried that he'll start. Hardly an assumption.

I believe you're missing the point.

It's still an ignorant assumption. It's possible he's not actually trying to draw attention to himself, but is legitimately depressed.

Also, define 'going emo'. Is he playing to the image, or is he just more vocal about his problems?
#23
Make him listen something very agressive! Lamb of god, Rotten sound, Vital remains, Disgorge, anything that makes you feel brutal, not emo!

Emos suck!

Well if he's being a whiny bi tch about everything then just explain that life isn't bad for him. Tell him what being truly depressed with real problems is. Like some people who have true issues in 3rd world countries or something similar. If its just a fashion phase then just smack him and tell him that emo is goth for pussies so yea....

You obviously do not know what depression is. Someone could appear to have everything going right for them and still be clinically depressed. You people are just being insensitive.
#30
Let him be. To be to over bearing and don't ignore him too much. He'll most likely grow out of it. You say he's depressed, but has nothing to be depressed about. Well, first off how do you know he has nothing to be depressed about? Does he dress in black, wear tight pants, etc., or is he just depressed? If it's the former he might just be trying to fit in somewhere. Lastly, he might have (clinical) depression, which is a chemical imbalance in your brain, you don't need a source to be depressed. If he start slitting his wrists (which will most not hurt him), well, he's probably just seeking attention, which you should be giving to him, compliment his drumming and what not. If he starts to wear armbands and other things to hide his wrists indiscreetly try and get him to remove them. If he does ever start cutting himself (wrists) tell him to stop, and that what he's doing is stupid and that if he doesn't stop he might sever a tendon leaving his wrist/hand paralyzed/weakened, which I imagine for a drummer isn't very good.

Arguebly.

But people can be depressed and not be emo, hell emo just seems to be attention seeking for uninteresting people.

I for one, have had manic depression since I was 13. You don't wear black clothes and make-up when you're depressed, you sit in your room and don't come out for days because the world just doesn't seem worth looking at. The emo "clique" are all pathetic, whiny, wastes of skin.

EDIT: ^ Please shut up, you ignorant piece of garbage. It has been proven so many times over it's not even worth mentioning anymore.

just act normal around him and try and have a laugh with him, I always think laughing is the best way to solve anything(that's right folks, even wars ("oh you" *canned laughter*))
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

I don't know any emo kids who actually act depressed. They might act " dark " or nihilistic or something of that nature, but from TS's post I think that I can fairly assume that this kid may be depressed.

or is it that you assume everyone that dresses in an emo style cuts themselves, and you've just realized it's nothing more than a fashion?

OMG!!! THAT'S IT!!! who knew it took 20 posts to figure it out.
#37
I dunno maybe stop letting your hang ups get in the way of what could potentially be very serious stuff your friend is going through? You don't always need particularly strong outside factors to cause depression. Try talking to him and helping him through what could be wrong with him rather than turning to an impersonal forum for advice on how to "fix" him
