TREATMENTS

The recommended treatment for depression is currently considered by most health care professionals to be a combination of antidepressant medication and therapy.

In addition to these treatments, there are other 'alternate' treatments that many people have found useful in managing their depression.

We aim to provide a comprehensive information source for the different treatments people are interested in, however this is for general information purposes only.   It is important that you discuss all treatments with your doctor or health care professional.
