I diagnosed Holden with a Mental Health issue that is called, Depression. Holden suffers from loss of interest in activities, and suicidal thoughts. Holden goes through his symptoms I have diagnosed him with. Holden struggled with loss of interest, an example I explained up above which was not attending a big football game everyone went to and instead he watched from his window, another example I explained was suicidal thoughts which he said he would kill himself if someone would be there to cover him up right after he jumped out of his window. Diagnosing Holden with depression I feel is best because as a teen your going to go through depression and having to isolate yourself and possibly have suicidal thoughts due to your case.
