Get expert help for depression
Whilst it is normal for everyone to feel sad or upset from time-to-time, when these feelings are overwhelming, persistent, or are affecting your ability to function on a daily basis, it may be that you are suffering from depression. At Priory, we understand that it can be very difficult to cope with depression, and that the symptoms of this condition, including experiencing intense feelings of hopelessness, can prevent many people from seeking the help and treatment for depression that they need.
However, it is important to know that you are not alone, and that depression is treatable; our expert, medically trained team of psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists are able to provide world class depression treatment, support and counselling at our specialist hospitals and wellbeing centres.
Our team of highly qualified professionals possess unrivalled clinical expertise in treating depression, and offer a wide variety of therapy options, as well as being able to prescribe medication for your depression if this is required. We are dedicated to placing you at the heart of treatment, within a highly supportive, therapeutic environment; we take the time to explore your medical history as well as your unique concerns and experiences, ensuring that we can provide you with a truly bespoke treatment journey, resulting in the best possible outcomes for you as an individual.
Without expert treatment, your depression symptoms may become progressively worse, resulting in a range of problems that have the potential to impact on all areas of your life, from your relationships with family and friends, to your performance at work or school. Therefore, whilst seeking help for your depression may seem to be daunting, it is the most important step that you can take to tackle your depressive illness, achieve positive mental wellbeing and resume the healthy and fulfilling life that you previously enjoyed.
