Referring in particular to this one: How to deal with depression privately and how to let my family know about it?
There are other questions on this site that deal with talking to family members about difficult subjects. Usually those people are lacking in some kind of interpersonal skill (or needing to establish boundries), which makes them on topic here.
In this case, however, it's not really a case of the OP's communication limitations, but the culture in which they live. As such, it's borderline on topic here (in my opinion).
That said, I can see us getting future questions like this. People may come and see the other questions (like How best to come out to socially conservative (and religious) family members?) and ask questions like this one, especially if they're depressed and are looking for help.
While a "normal" off-topic question would be closed (and that would be it) these kinds of questions are asked by people who are obviously struggling and in need of real help. Even though closing the question may be a necessity (depending on its meeting the criteria), it may be a good idea to have a means of also supplying them with links to suicide help lines, etc.
We could do that in the comments. Or, we could have a "canonical" question/answer with a more detailed answer supplying this kind of information (perhaps used as a "duplicate" closure option for future questions like this). This is why I've answered the question referred to above.
Since comments are meant to be temporary (and not contain answers), and comments are character limited, I feel like it's more appropriate to write an answer instead.
This is probably the most involved I've got into a SE site before, so I don't know if this is the way things are done or not around here. Is just giving links in the comments enough, or would a canonical answer be a good idea?
(I know there's no obligation to do anything in these cases, but I do personally want to give the OP a bit of direction to get help if possible)
