Depression Treatment Options- a Quick Start Guide
You or someone you care about has been diagnosed with depression- so now what? In this video, I’m going to teach 5 essential things you should know to get started treating your depression right away. I’ll share 14 research-backed treatment options for depression and help you get connected to local resources. Depression doesn’t have to be permanent-it’s treatable- here’s how.
First: A depression diagnosis does not mean that you are defective, nor that it’s your fault, you’re not broken and the disorder is treatable. It is not a character trait or just a “Chemical imbalance” Depression is a real and challenging condition that combines biology, life experience, thoughts and actions to create a pattern that is difficult to break out of on your own, but with the right resources and support things can get way better!
