not necessarily. i had a friend who would go to extreme lengths to get attention for her depression and i would suffer in silence and try to solve it myself. i had a male friend who would call me on numerous occasions threatening suicide etc. it depends on the person and how they developed their disorder and what initial coping mechanisms they learned.
