    Suicidal Tendency is a Major Complication of Depression. How long have you been suffering from depression. 17 is too young to even have athought of suicide. You need to attend regular counselling sessions with your psychiatrist. Firstly you should AVOID the major warning signs of suicide like staying Alone away from friendsnd family , thinking and talking about people who have committed suicides etc . Kindly meet a psychiatrist right away and take necessary counselling and medications
