Treatments for Depression
Most patients with depression benefit from medication and counselling. Medications can be prescribed by your primary care physician or psychiatrist to alleviate symptoms. However, contacting a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health experts can help many people with depression.
If you have severe depression, you might need to go to the hospital or enrol in an outpatient treatment programme until your symptoms improve.
Depression is usually treated with a combination of self-help, talking therapy, and medications.
The sort of depression you have will determine the treatment you receive.
