Sometimes it's possible to communicate a great deal in a few short minutes. In this video, produced by the WHO, the experience of depression is described using Winston Churchill's metaphor of the black dog.
Is there an alternative to a medication-based approach to depression? If someone takes medication, is there more they can do in order to maximize the effect? Consider seeking the help of a qualified psychotherapist trained in cognitive behaviour therapy.
In addition, our clinic has developed a cognitive behavioral guide to self-care for depression. Though not a substitute for professional face-to-face care, UnDoing Depression may be a useful adjunct to your efforts. The preview is below.
