My mom keeps asking me to go talk to someone about my depression/anxiety. Is this a normal thing to do? I feel like if I needed to talk to anyone extra my regular doctor would have referred me to someone. I'm not a suicide risk or anything, just struggling more than usual lately so she's worried. Is this a mom thing or should people with depression/anxiety be in counseling/therapy/etc?

Sorry if this comes across as me trivializing mental health issues, I'm not trying to judge anyone else for seeking more help than I have.. I just really hadn't thought about it before and not sure if it's what I need or should be doing. If you have any experiences please share.
