Examples of a Get Well Letter for Depression
You've been on my mind recently. I though I'd write you to encourage you. I've noticed that you haven't been your usual self lately. I've wanted to say something, but I wasn't sure how to talk to you. Writing you seemed to be the next best option. I want you to know that you are important to me and I look forward to the time we spend together. You and I usually have a blast.
What I've noticed lately is that you seem to be having some sort of trouble, but I don't know what is going on. You seem distracted and more negative than you have been in the past. It is getting to be more difficult to get you to get out and do things with me. You reassure me that you are fine and that I shouldn't worry, but you know I don't always listen to what you say.
I want you to know that I am available if you want to talk about anything. I'll be praying for you in general ways unless and until you decide to share with me what you might be going through. There's nothing you could tell me that will make me no longer want to be your friend.
