Treatments for depression.
Depression is a serious disorder that could cause a person to lose control of their actions and end up harming themselves or others. Depression is a chemical imbalance within the brain and has some serious side effects like suicidal tendencies. With the right treatment plan, a person can successfully get over their depression and be the person they were before the depression turned their world upside down. When it comes to treatment there are two solutions.
One solution is to allow yourself to become medicated under the caution of a doctor. The second solution is to allow yourself to open up in therapy. Sometimes it is best if you combine meds with therapy. This is usually recommended for those with severe depression and sometimes a person may even need to be admitted into a hospital for treatment.
Of course admitting a person into a hospital doesn't help them cure their depression. In fact, it could make the person become even more delusional. Being admitted to stabilize the person and allow them to be watched 24/7 in case they would want to harm themselves. This is very rare, but it is necessary for some people.
As for the medicines that a person with depression could be put on are antidepressants with medicines that are anti-suicidal too. The names of the drugs could be thousands of possible names since the FDA has released many drugs that allow a person to deal with their depression and behavior. Medicines are not used without some type of therapy, because the drugs will medicate a person to become controllable while the therapy allows a person to release their depression triggers.
For therapy you could go by yourself for one on one session or you could be part of a group therapy. You may even want to bring along a friend or family member to go with you, depending on your own insecurities. In therapy, they try to get to the root of the problem and see what triggered the depression and find ways on how to deal with the depression. Therapy is a great tool of expression. Everything that is said is said in confidentiality and is not repeated. It is a safe place.
