Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it allowed to tell someone your problems? I have been struggling from depression and anxiety kind of stuff. I didn’t tell anybody about it so it got worse. I know alhamdullila, that only Allah can cure this and get me out of this but can I tell someone like sharing with someone and is it allowed to tell an Aalim of Deen about your problems as I faced problems and I didn’t tell anyone about it so it got worse.


A: Yes. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
