There is not one single factor as to what causes someone to suffer with depression and it is not a trivial matter, it is a medical condition that can affect anyone at any time. It is important not to feel helpless, instead speak to someone as soon as you feel able and seek help. The good news is, with the right support you can achieve positive mental wellbeing again.
One of our patient’s has told his story about his depression diagnosis and treatment. The film is a dramatisation about his experience.
At the Priory we offer tailored depression treatment programmes for individuals, based on their medical history and personal experience. A specialist consultant will oversee your treatment, which will usually include a course of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and may also include medication to restore the chemical imbalance in your brain’s limbic system.
Our holistic approach to depression treatment includes varied exercise programmes as well as a nationwide network of support groups. We encourage healthy eating to promote your long term recovery.
